WildEarth TV Channel Announces NFT Collection for Wildlife Conservation

WildEarth TV channel that tracks animal movements in the wild will now sell NFTs to help support wildlife habitat conservation efforts

SINGAPORE/ACCESSWIRE/January 28, 2022/ WildEarth, one of the world’s largest broadcasters of live nature and animal experiences, has announced an NFT project that empowers viewers and nature enthusiasts to support conservation efforts and build relationships directly with individual animals across WildEarth’s global footprint.

40% of NFT sales will go to park and reserve habitat custodians to further conservation efforts. After the initial sale, WildEarth will receive a 10% royalty on all secondary market sales. 80% of those royalties will go to the custodian of that particular animal’s wildlife habitat. For every 1 NFT minted, WildEarth will mint another and hold that NFT in cash for later sale in the secondary market for a steady revenue stream for custodians.

WildEarth has already finalized the presale of 25 individual animal collections on the Polygon network to take advantage of negligible energy costs. 1,077 [MATIC] ERC-721 tokens were sold to their dedicated spectator community, totaling 503 unique wallets.

The NFT initiative has been marketed to over 5 million monthly WildEarth TV channel viewers on platforms including Roku, DStv Africa, Amazon, iOS, Android, Plex, Bolt, Huawei, Xumo, Samsung+, Sling , LG+, Zeasn and others. In Q4 2022, each NFT will be associated with individual animals, with each NFT owner having access via a mobile app to videos, photos, details, anecdotes and movement over time of each animal.

Graham Wallington, co-founder and CEO of WildEarth, says: “Since 2007, we have built a loyal and growing army of nature lovers who watch our TV channel frequently, many of them daily. This new NFT initiative brings our community closer to the animals they love, fostering a personal and emotional connection with the animals of their choice while funding the care and conservation of the environments in which these animals live.

In February 2022, the Search and ID show on WildEarth TV will feature the new “watch-to-earn” utility. A thermal drone will search the African darkness to find and identify nocturnal predators and add them to the animal registry. At that time, a limited-time strike window will open for viewers to strike this animal as an NFT. Once the knock window is closed, it will not reopen.

A future mobile app will not only provide access to all individual animal data, but will enable social chat between NFT owners, promoting the sharing of information about their special animal friends with each other. Each animal collection becomes a club of meta guardians following the life of real world wild animals and just by owning one of its NFTs you are helping to protect its habitat or home which is the key to the wildlife conservation.

Torsten Hoffmann, producer of two award-winning documentaries on Bitcoin and the crypto sector and a longtime investor in WildEarth said, “WildEarth’s mission has always been to increase the value of nature to people. With these NFTs we bring something completely new to the market. »

At 5:00 p.m. GMT on Friday, January 28, 2022, WildEarth will open minting windows for its first 25 collections. Visit mint.wildearth.tv. to hit NFTs for 120 MATIC. Max 10 NFT per wallet per collection, max 50 NFT per wallet. These 25 strike windows will close at 5:00 p.m. GMT on Monday, January 31, 2022, and will no longer open for these individual animals.

Disclaimer: The non-fungible tokens provided by WildEarth are not investments. Their main goal is to fund wildlife habitat conservation by providing NFT owners with a special relationship with unique animals. Buyers should not expect the value of NFTs to increase and they may lose all value except for this special relationship. Therefore, WildEarth strongly suggests that you only spend money on NFTs that you can afford to lose.
