A wild NFTcollection designed to save real life animals suffering from Ukraine War.

a wild collection designed to make you laugh out loud but with a brilliant purpose!

Set your animal free!  🐼

Not From the Zoo (NFTZ) is a wild tribe of 8,888 unique editions minted on the Ethereum blockchain. The animated nature of the collection transcends the lively characters behind its animals, their uniqueness and ability to express emotions. Like in the real world, the animals have feelings - whether joy, fear, love or sadness. They reflect the thousands of animals held in captivity, separated from their natural habitat and forced to perform. NFTZ aim to evoke awareness of the animals being living creatures that deserve respect and protection. 

With generative NFT collectibles, an algorithm mixes together traits (or 'properties') like background color, eye type, or a variety of mouths to create a huge range of combinations of visual outputs. The result is thousands of unique NFTs, each with its distinctive set of attributes. Thanks to these properties and their unequal distribution, certain items in the collection will be rarer than others! You can use your unique animal to express reactions on social networks, share the cause, or even put it as a profile picture.

Rank yourself up! 🐰

Our top buyers and collectors will be featured on the Leaderboard and get exclusive items at the end of the sale. Since our ranks classify by the highest amount paid per item, be sure to show your support and secure your place on the Leaderboard through our mint page. Know more!

FAQ's 🐼

What are NFTs?

NFT stands for "Non-fungible token," a unique, digital item with blockchain-managed ownership that users can buy, own, and trade. While some NFT's function as digital art, they can also offer additional benefits like exclusive access to websites, event tickets, game items, and ownership records for physical objects. Think of it as a unique piece of art that can also serve as a one-of-a-kind "members-only" card.

How many NFTz can I buy at once?

You can buy as many as you want with the limit of 10 per transaction.

How does my Not From the Zoo NFT purchase help animals?

Not From The Zoo is donating 100% of profits from all of their initial NFT sales o support PETA’s Global Compassion Fund, which will provide an immediate boost to PETA Germany and other partners working to deliver veterinary care, and other necessities to animals in Ukraine. The NFTz collection will also have a 5% royalty fee for secondary sales that occur on OpenSea, of which half will go to support PETA’s game-changing work. Donations will be made to PETA through The Giving Block

PETA doesn’t let a single day go by without making progress for animals who are being exploited and abused for entertainment. PETA’s headline-grabbing campaigns and determined activism is leading to the seizure of tigers held by notorious animal abusers, the closure of hideous roadside zoos, and the rescue of bears, chimpanzees and other animals from decrepit roadside zoos and circuses.
