Australia Zoo is launching a ‘Wildlife Warriors’ NFT, in a bid to raise awareness and funds for the world’s species

The venture is in partnership with the startup company Meadow Labs, and will focus on a variety of animals at the zoo.

“At Australia Zoo we’re always open to new ways that can help continue our Wildlife Warriors mission,” says Robert Irwin, who is the son of the iconic crocodile hunter, Steve Irwin.

The limited series will be created on Algorand, which is a proof-of-stake blockchain crypto protocol.

“Any innovation that can help our conservation efforts, particularly one that shares our vision of protecting the planet, is something we’re thrilled to support.”

“This green chain and new technology allows us a new avenue to continue to fight for the protection of our wildlife and wild places.” Irwin says.

They NFTs will be randomly generated and 100 per cent unique to the buyer. This means there will be no duplicates in sight.

“It’s fantastic to see Australia Zoo and Meadow Labs bring wildlife conservation fundraising to the Algorand blockchain, as it really fits in with our core value of sustainability,” says Adriana Belotti from Algorand.

“I’m sure that collecting these NFTs will resonate with everyone who has a soft spot for the iconic Aussie wildlife, both here and abroad,” she added.

The transactions are processed through a ‘smart contract’ in which 100 per cent of primary sales are automatically transferred to Australia Zoo.

The NFTs be available globally and available for purchase with via MoonPay.
