Event description

Description

India is a megadiverse country, accounting for 7-8% of the species of the world. The 91,000 species of animals found in India include megafauna like tigers, leopards, snow leopards, elephants, and rhinos, in addition to numerous other mammals, reptiles and birds. Of these, 12.6% of mammals, 4.5% of birds, 45.8% of reptiles and 55.8% of amphibians are endemic to India, being found nowhere else in the world. But over the years, illegal wildlife trade has threatened the existence of many wild species in India and across the globe.

Urgent action is needed to develop tools that will help conservationists around the world curb poaching and illegal trade in wildlife and reduce the demand for illegal wildlife products. The Zoohackathon is an innovative computer-coding event that does just that! It brings together developers, designers, project managers, and subject matter experts to create applications, systems, and tools that can help fight against wildlife trafficking.

Live Zoohackathon events will take place in New Delhi, Mumbai, Uganda, Madrid, San Diego, and Malaysia. This link provides registration options for New Delhi.

Important Registration Information: Please form teams prior to the event; each team could include between 3-6 members. Give yourself a team name. Each team member must register individually but please be sure to mention your team name when registering. Seats will be limited and we will get back to you on your participation, once the registrations closes.
