Con X Tech Prize Finalist

Twenty projects, one goal: ending extinction.

We’re proud to announce that the Forgotten Parks Foundation (FPF) are finalists for the Con X Tech Prize,  microgrants program to bring revolutionary ideas from blueprint to prototype.

Our idea of using Bluetooth Low Energy Beacons with Android smartphones as an open source early warning system to mitigate Human Wildlife Conflict was selected as one of the twenty innovations that have the potential for exponential impact and help end human-induced extinction.

FPF will be receiving $3,500 to develop our idea into a first prototype for the next round of the competition where we will be competing for the grand prize of $20,000 to support further development and implementation of the project into the field.
