Pangolins in disguise

To evade poachers, 11,000 pangolins have dressed up as humans – but they're not particularly good at dressing themselves. Obviously.

Early supporters’ price only 0.05 ETH (first 500)


A nifty fashion sense alone may not be enough to save pangolins from extinction ... but the funds raised from the sale of this generative art NFT collection will.

Led by scientist, conservationist and founder of Pangolins International, Maria Diekmann, our mission is to raise the funds to establish a network of 9 pangolin conservation centres around the globe, dedicated to the protection of the most trafficked mammal in the world.

By minting a NiFTy Pangolins NFT, you'll be joining a dynamic community, coming together to pull pangolins back from the brink of extinction.

Environmental impact

We deliberately chose to release the NiFTy Pangolins collection after the Ethereum blockchain switched from its energy-intensive Proof-of-Work model to Proof-of-Stake. This means that the carbon impact of buying an NFT – previously comparable to taking a transatlantic flight – has been slashed by a massive 99.95%.

The primary pangolin conservation centre is being built in Nigeria's Emerald Forest Reserve, which will soon be operating a carbon sinking initiative. Once the collection has sold out, we'll be working with the Emerald Forest Reserve to offset at least double the amount of CO2 generated by our collection, making it carbon-negative.
