Chimpanzee Trust manages Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary on Lake Victoria which was founded in 1998 by Dr. Jane Goodall and a group of founding Ugandan trustees.
Chris Austria is a Wildlife Conservationist, Photographer, and longtime friend of Ngamba Island Chimpanzee Sanctuary. The Trust is in collaboration with Chris Austria who we share a passion and commitment to the sustainability of chimpanzees as a specie.
Chris Austria has set up an NFTs (non-fungible tokens) account and these are unique cryptographic tokens that exist on a blockchain and cannot be replicated.
NFTs can represent real-world items like artwork and real estate. ‘’Tokenizing” these real-world tangible assets makes buying, selling, and trading them more efficient while reducing the probability of fraud.
The NFTs account for Chris Austria explores all the beauty of the African continent as he combines digital and physical art with real-world experiences.
He has listed photography for Ngamba island chimps and if you purchase the chimp picture, a portion of the sales will go towards the care of the orphaned great apes at Ngamba Island Chimpanzee sanctuary.
When you buy an NFT you get a signed physical print that you can display in your home or office. It is the perfect pairing of physical and digital.
Your purchase of the NFTs is an indirect contribution to the welfare and conservation efforts of chimpanzee conservation globally
