Kenya’s wildlife faces habitat destruction, poaching, and illegal trade threats. These issues not only threaten the survival of many species but also have negative impacts on local communities and economies. The Web3 for Wildlife Conservation encounter brought conservationists, techies, and wildlife enthusiasts to learn about leveraging web3 technology for conservation efforts. Speakers discussed the fundamentals of blockchain, showcased innovative use cases and projects, and delved into the challenges and opportunities of crypto adoption in Africa. The attendees also had the chance to share their projects and network with potential partners, including BaoTree, OkoaNature, and WWF Kenya.
