THEME: Caring For Wild Animals

Wild animals are a key part of the natural world and play an important role in the ecosystem. Humans have long relied on animals as prey, as working animals, and as treasured friends and companions. However, with increasing poaching and pollution, the number of wild animals around the world is shrinking day by day. Many rare and beautiful species are already on the verge of extinction due to destruction of their habitat.


We need to step up to protect wild animals and maintain the ecological balance in nature. Come join the Matataworld Global Competition today, and take part in competitions that will test your programming ability and your creativity in preserving our precious environment.
