These twenty projects are changing the future of conservation.

We're proud to announce the finalists for the Con X Tech Prize, our microgrants program to bring revolutionary ideas from blueprint to prototype. From cargo shipments to machine learning to microfinance, we've selected twenty innovations that have the potential for exponential impact and help end human-induced extinction.

Each team will be receiving $3,500 to develop their idea into a first prototype for the next round of the competition. Then, one grand prize winner will be awarded $20,000 to support the future of their project. Click each project to find out more.
