Wildlabs Women in Conservation Technology Program for Emerging Tanzanian Conservationists

Applications are now open for the 2024 Women in Conservation Technology Programme. Are you an emerging conservationist looking to leverage new technologies in your conservation practice and to become part of an empowering network of female conservation leaders?

Apply now for our Women in Conservation Technology Programme! We’re seeking ten early-career Tanzanian women to participate in a six-month programme that includes two in-person workshops and virtual training courses. These sessions will equip you with foundational skills in technological solutions to overcome pressing wildlife conservation challenges.

Eligibility Requirements

  • Applications are now open for ‘Women in Conservation Technology’, a six-month training programme for early career Tanzanian women.

  • Selected participants will explore technological solutions to regional conservation challenges.

  • This year, the Women in Conservation Technology programme is run in partnership by the Grumeti Fund’s Research and Innovation for the Serengeti Ecosystem (RISE), the WILDLABS Conservation Technology Community, and the international wildlife NGO, Fauna & Flora.

    Eligibility requirements

    This programme is designed for early-career women in the conservation field. Applicants must:

  • Be a Tanzanian national and identify as a woman.

  • Be at least 18 years old and have completed a Diploma or B.Sc. in Wildlife Conservation, Forestry, Environmental Science, Zoology or a related area.

  • Have less than three years of professional experience in the conservation field (not including time spent on education).

  • Be passionate about conservation and curious about technology. Individuals with a demonstrated interest in securing a position as a research assistant, field programme staff, or pursuing an advanced degree related to conservation science are strongly encouraged to apply.

  • Individuals already employed with a conservation organization are encouraged to apply, with the support of their supervisor.

  • Be able to commit to both in-person workshops and participate in virtual programming.


    Participants will attend two in-person workshops at the RISE field institute in the Serengeti. During the five-month interim between workshops, we will facilitate virtual skills building and professional development training. After completing the programme, participants will have ongoing opportunities to engage with their cohort, the Women in Conservation Technology alumni community, and broader networks of women and conservational professionals across East Africa.

    The first workshop, scheduled for June 3-7 2024 (arrive June 2 and depart June 8), will offer a hands-on introduction to hardware and software tools currently used for wildlife monitoring, wildlife protection, and human-wildlife mitigation. Led by field experts, this workshop will also include leadership training and networking sessions where participants can connect with established female leaders in the East African conservation technology sector.


  • Up to ten participants will be funded for in-country travel and on-site accommodation during the two in-person workshops. Contributions to childcare costs during these sessions are possible.

  • Participants are required to attend the complete range of programme dates (workshop 1: June 2-8; workshop 2: December 3-7) and must submit a letter of support from their current supervisor acknowledging that the applicant has secured permission to attend both in-person and virtual trainings.

  • A certificate will be issued upon completion.
