Party Parrot is in Trouble.
Other Animals Too.

We all know and love PartyParrot, the dancing emoji with a cult following. This ridiculous emoji was a play on a September 2009 viral video of a Kakapo parrot named Sirocco, trying to mate with a zoologist's neck… Well now he’s in trouble. Billions of animals are suffering right now. Animal welfare is human welfare. Join us to help minimize animal cruelty by using new technology.

1.6T

At least 1.6 trillion wild animals are killed and suffer through people’s actions every year.

70B

More than 70 billion farm animals are consumed annually.

25%

25% of the world’s greenhouse gas emissions are due to food production,  which also takes up half of the planet’s habitable surface.

The challenges to improve
animal welfare

Scientific and technological advances have already brought us the first lab-grown hamburger  and camera traps for wild animals with computer vision that help prevent poaching, but we have many other ways we could try to better the situation. Using technology can help us disrupt all of the below areas:  

New ways of funding animal charities
Tools for changing food value chains
Measuring impact of factory farming
Building tools for social advocacy
Promoting product alternatives
Fish suffering, frogotten farm animals
Effective volunteer engagement
Exposing animal cruelty
+ More
New ways of funding animal charities
Better ways to catalogue wild animals
Increasing empathy towards wild animals
Building tools for social advocacy
Automated ways of analizing the population
Fish suffering, frogotten farm animals
Effective volunteer engagement
Understanding risks of danger and suffering

We were doing the Tech for Good program at Netguru, but it took a lot of hard work to do it well. You had to do internal project selection processes, promote it, embrace it - actually a lot of people were involved. Finally we realize that TTTR allows to outsource the process of selection and makes it posible to focus only on the essence - delivering projects. Thanks to TTTR we do not have to waste time on the whole envelope but we can focus on the core." ~

We decided to support TTTR because it feels like the right thing to do. As a values-driven business, we believe in playing a role in wider society, and donating time and expertise to a well-coordinated effort to make NGOs more efficient and effective is perhaps the best way we can make this planet a better place for our children.
