About Infinite WILD
Welcome to Infinite WILD, an NFT project designed to invite collectors into the world of biodiversity conservation.
Technology, like renewable energy, for all its exciting potential, is not yet capable of being deployed quickly enough at the necessary scale (global) to halt the climate crisis or mass extinction. We need nature’s help – and likely always will – if we want a sustainable future.
Why wild nature? …
Well, our oceans and forests are the biggest carbon storage facilities we have helping to slow the climate emergency. Nature also produces all the oxygen we breathe. It stabilizes our climate patterns making investment in agriculture possible. And it also directly supports the livelihoods of over 1.7 BILLION people annually. To put it simply, without nature’s life-giving, ecological services our civilization loses essential biological, economic, and climate support.
To build support and appreciation for nature’s multitude of life-giving functions. Structured as a traditional card deck, including four suits that correspond to the four categories of scientifically recognized ecological service categories.
As an added bonus, all donors during the time period above will receive a Community Card NFT of the deck’s card back design. Your membership in a unique community of NFT-collecting nature advocates who invested in WILD’s critical work mobilizing support to protect Half of Earth’s lands and seas will be minted and immortalized, regardless of your gift size!
A Little Bit About
WILD is the organization working in countries around the world to mobilize action to protect Half of Earth’s lands and seas – the amount scientists say we need to have a future. We began in South Africa almost 50 years ago as a friendship between a South African game ranger and his Zulu mentor. Despite the discrimination they faced during the apartheid regime, they worked together to do something that had never been done before: save a species – the Southern White Rhino – from the brink of extinction.
Their experience taught them that without widespread, global support, we could never reverse the accelerating destruction of wild nature. Thus, WILD was born. Our primary mission is to create and mobilize the action needed to save life on Earth.

About The Artists
WILD Vice President, Policy & Communications
Since the beginning of her career campaigning for a sustainable, just, and healthy world, Amy has been designing digital art, sometimes in service to others and sometimes just because she needs to create. Her earliest works included a digital shrine to a contemporary take on the Muses who, according to Amy, now act as patrons to (in addition to their existing duties) the History Channel, Mass Media, and Rock & Roll. While her work for WILD has taken a less artistic, far more strategic turn working on an international team campaigning to save Earth’s biosphere by protecting Half of all land and seas, she enjoyed revisiting her past and producing the art for the Infinite Wild NFT collection.
Mark is a graphic designer, photographer and artist. He loves to solve problems visually and aims to make the world a better place with effective, thought-provoking design. Away from designing, Mark is passionate about mountain biking, sailing the Great Lakes and spending time with his family.
Do I have to donate with crypto-currency to be eligible to receive an NFT?
If I donate, am I sure to receive one of the unique 54 Infinite WILD cards?
Every donor who gives at any level is guaranteed ownership of a Community Card NFT (a set of 1,000) featuring the card back design. After December 31st, the 54 donors who have given the most will receive one of the uniquely designed Infinite Wild cards. There is no way to tell what specific level someone will have to give at in order to receive one of these cards, however, the more you donate, the better your chances! As a guideline, the median donation of our top 54 supporters in 2021 was $1,000.
What if I am only interested in a specific card/design?
We are flattered that you appreciate our art and understand that you may be especially drawn to one or more cards. Unfortunately, we cannot promise our supporters that they will receive any specific card. When making your donation, please note in the “additional comments” section which card you prefer. The donor with the highest donation is most likely to receive their preference.
Protecting nature on a large scale is critical for local communities and the planet. We cannot do it alone.
