This is your chance to save the rarest great ape on this planet from extinction.


At 300 Gorillas, we are dedicated to using the power of NFTs to advance the cause of wildlife conservation. This first bold NFT series aims to save the Cross River Gorilla by funding the creation of new protected areas and rainforests corridors. Join us in our mission to create a sustainable future for all species, one NFT at a time.


This NFT collection is more than just fundraising, it is about bringing like-minded individuals with a passion for wildlife together. A vital goal of our collection is to develop a global conservation community together saving Africa’s most endangered great ape. This community will serve to further conservation efforts far exceeding the time the collection is for sale.

Planet for us to save with collective action

“We are thrilled to launch this NFT project for Earth Day 2023 and raise awareness for the Cross River gorillas. With the support of the conservation and NFT community, we hope to raise over £1.6m to preserve the habitats of the incredibly rare Cross River gorillas and secure their future for generations to come.”

Arend De Haas

African Conservation Foundation

“Speaking to the ACF and hearing the urgent need for action we couldn't help but try this new approach to fundraising. We can't wait to see who will get the Million Dollar Ape but there are thousands of other NFTs starting from just a few dollars. This mission needs support from as many people as possible.”

What’s the environmental impact of NFTs?

The environmental impact of this project is almost negligible following the Ethereum merge, resulting in a 99.99% reduction from 2022 onwards. Additionally, this project's core objective is to restore and conserve forests, and any contribution to CO2 emissions will be offset by planting trees that will grow safely for many years and will capture greenhouse gases for centuries to come.

Will the funds actually go towards conservation?

ACF is a trusted charity that has been operating for 24 years, with minimal overhead costs (no offices or paid staff outside of Africa) and a focus on local capacity development. Therefore you can trust us to use all resources to save the Cross River Gorilla and other species - check out our work on our website. Please note, with regard to this NFT project, there is a revenue share agreement in place with We Are Meta as they charged ACF £0 for production and have therefore taken on the financial risk. The split of revenues is 75:25 in favour of the conservation programmes of ACF.

Why NFTs and not normal fundraising?

As a charity, our founders have always been committed to using the latest innovative technologies to advance conservation, including Blockchain monitoring and reporting systems for ecosystem restoration and conservation. Ultimately, NFTs offer us the opportunity to develop a conservation community, which are seen not only as donors but as partners, by making token gated communities. NFTs also reward donors with a unique piece of digital art for donating, and finally we hope that the NFT series holds long term value and therefore the revenue generation goes beyond the initial sale. When an NFT is sold on a secondary market, a percentage of the sale price will be set aside as a commission that is donated directly to our conservation efforts.

By incentivising resellers to contribute to conservation, NFT projects can create a sustainable source of funding that can be used to support critical conservation initiatives for endangered species in Africa and beyond. With the increasing popularity of NFTs, commissions from reselling can be a powerful way to create a positive impact on the environment while also building a vibrant and engaged community of NFT collectors and conservationists.

Why should we protect Cross River gorillas?

Beyond their intrinsic value, Cross River gorillas are essential to the survival of rainforests. They play a crucial role in maintaining the biodiversity of their forest habitats by dispersing the seeds of the trees they eat and creating gaps in the forest through foraging and migration. These gaps allow light to penetrate the forest, enabling light-loving plants to grow.

The loss of these ecological services provided by large-bodied seed dispersers can have significant impacts on the forests. Without gorillas, the population dynamics of plants in the forest would be strongly impacted due to dispersal limitations. In the long term, this could lead to a shift in plant community structure and composition, as well as a reduction in tree diversity. Saving the rainforest without protecting gorillas would result in the gradual demise of the forest.

In addition to their role in maintaining forest biodiversity, gorillas are also an umbrella species. By protecting them, we are protecting other species and their habitat, thereby conserving biodiversity on a much larger scale.

Lastly, gorillas contribute significantly to natural carbon capture by trees, helping to fight climate change. The world's forests act as a natural trap for carbon emissions, absorbing approximately 4.8 billion tonnes of carbon dioxide each year. Protecting Cross River gorillas, therefore, has a far-reaching impact beyond their individual conservation, making them a key species to conserve for the health of our planet.
