This October 2022, we will host our third online Hackathon in partnership with the Kenya Wildlife Trust (KWT), an NGO committed to the protection and conservation of predators and their ecology, situated in the Maasai Mara National park in southwestern Kenya.

KWT and SNI have joined forces to invite adventurous labs and developers to tackle a pressing challenge: how to protect predators --keystone species in the Maasai Mara who play a vital role in maintaining the ecosystem's resilience.

Applications close on the 12th of September.
