What is Zoohackathon?

Zoohackathon is a global competition that brings together university students, coders, developers, designers, project managers, and subject matter experts to develop innovative solutions to address on-the-ground wildlife trafficking issues.

This year for 2021, eight virtual and in-person events will take place across the world in October and November.

Over two and a half days, participants competing in the Zoohackathon events will break up into teams to develop innovative technology solutions to help combat wildlife trafficking. Each event will emphasize local and regional wildlife trafficking challenges and will feature locally-focused problem statements, pre-recorded and live video presentations, fun and educational moments, partners and mentors, judges, and prizes.
