Over the years, the number of turtles and tortoises have greatly diminished, and some species are even declared to be critically endangered. As a result, many organizations have taken on the noble advocacy of preserving and reviving its populations, including the NFT collection Tropical Turtles.
What motivated the core team behind the impressive venture was their passion for helping the environment. Turtles and tortoises are gentle creatures that play a vital role in the ocean’s ecosystem. They help maintain healthy seagrass beds and coral reefs which in turn provides vital habitat for fish and other marine life.
However, several factors have caused its populations to dwindle, including the destruction of its feeding and nesting habitats due to pollution and the demand for turtle meat, eggs, skin, and shells which promotes poaching. As such, it is crucial to protect and repopulate them because if these animals become extinct, it can be catastrophic for the entire planet.
The Tropical Turtles collection features 1,500 non-fungible tokens of cute turtle avatars. Each design is skillfully created by lead designer Eday with a distinct body, hat, face, outfit, and accessories. It is then randomly generated on the Ethereum blockchain.
Due to its cute and one-of-a-kind artworks and outstanding advocacy, many people have supported the incredible enterprise. Currently, it has over 50% unique ownership, which is a testament to the immense potential of the collection.
On top of that, the project had achieved 100% of its milestones within a few days from when it was launched. As a result, Tropical Turtles has already fulfilled its promise of donating $10,000 to the Turtle Conservancy.
Aside from its efforts to conserve turtles and tortoises, Tropical Turtles have also shown that it is equally passionate about creating a strong community. As part of its roadmap and to celebrate important milestones, the developers have selected ten lucky individuals to receive additional Tropical Turtles as well as 5 ETH to its token owners. Additionally, it has created a Discord server wherein the community can freely interact with one another and discuss things relevant to the collection.
Due to the success of its first collection, the venture is planning to release another collection called Tropical Otters. It is expected to be released very soon and is free to mint for Tropical Turtles holders. The developers are excited to drop the new collection and hope that it will receive the same support as the first collection.
Moving forward, the inspiring enterprise sees itself expanding its reach and working with more NFT enthusiasts and crypto aficionados. It also plans to cultivate a diverse and robust community that would help the crypto industry thrive.
Above all, Tropical Turtles remains steadfast in its commitment to the cause and aims to raise more funds which it will then donate to the Turtle Conservancy.
