Carbon-Negative Algorand Blockchain to Host Australia Zoo’s NFT
In an effort to protect wildlife and their habitat, Australia Zoo has unveiled an NFT venture. Specifically, the project will be hosted on the carbon-negative Algorand blockchain. In this regard, Australia Zoo has partnered with Meadow Labs to build a distinct Australian wildlife-based NFT series on the greenest blockchain in the world.
Notably, ‘Wildlife Warriors’ commemorates the 20th year of the Wildlife Warriors conservationist organization, which was founded by Steve Irwin and Terri Irwin in 2002.
Australia Zoo’s Robert Irwin has pointed out that “At Australia Zoo, we’re constantly looking for innovative methods to assist our Wildlife Warriors vision continues to grow and thrive.”
He further stated that any advancement that can aid in conservation initiatives, specifically the one sharing our view of safeguarding the planet, is a matter that the organization will be happy to assist.
Irwin also stated that the green blockchain and cutting-edge technology have provided us with a distinct way to battle for the preservation of wildlife and their habitat.
The NFT series will consist of a bouquet of drops, each centered on a distinct animal. The digital image (NFT) can be bought through MoonPay’s fiat on-ramping facility.
Commenting on the initiative, Martin Kelly, co-founder, and CEO of Meadow Labs stated that the organization is thrilled to join hands with Australia Zoo in their entry into Web3 and their objective of battling for the planet’s wildlife and habitat by releasing one NFT at a time.
Kelly said that “Innovative companies may attain stunning results when they gear up to the infinite possibilities of Web3.”

He further stated that “Creating an ‘NFT for good’ campaign is simply the start of a long relationship to ensure that we all live in a sustainable environment.”
In the last few weeks, the British Museum has come under fire for the carbon footprint of its NFT initiative.
Notably, NFTs were the focus of blooloop’s greenloop 2022 conference on sustainable practices in tourist attractions. Ticket holders will have access to audio and video footage for the rest of this year.
