Barclays Code Playground - Whale escape

Live event from 8 June 2021

We’re using code to raise awareness for our ocean’s whales, dolphins and porpoises, of which UK and European waters are home to a third of the world’s species. In partnership with ORCA, we’re coding with conservation in mind. We need you to use ‘selection’ and ‘conditions’ to help whales catch fish and avoid some man-made hazards. Once you’ve helped our whale safely navigate his way to meal time, take a look at the ORCA site to see how you can get involved and support these amazing creatures in the wild.
