Cardano Animal Welfare
Bio Pool will build the first Cardano-related animal welfare project in Africa.
If you vote for this project, we will donate a percentage of the pool’s income to the fundraising wallet of this project. The tokens we receive in return for the donation will be distributed to all our delegates. Adding this project to our site will make it possible for even people with a small stake to help reach this goal.
Of course, you can also support us by donating directly to this cause. You will also get a Bio Token back as a reward for every 25 ADA you donate.
All you have to do is send exactly 25 ADA to this address: addr1vyayaqst48amzzx82f3wm36z450439qfzkkcczhjxs404hspkxfnu

Enabling the world’s best restoration projects through technology.
The world’s first on-the-ground monitoring technology for the highest quality restoration projects, Veritree captures real-time information directly from planters.
Built using blockchain technology, Veritree validates information from planting sites, tokenizes trees to ensure no double counting, and leaves a permanent record.
Connecting consumers directly to trees, Veritree is the only fully integrated platform that allows consumers to see and track their trees as they grow.
We switched this project to Veritree. It was One Tree Planted before.

Rettet den Regenwald
Rainforest Rescue, in Germany „Rettet den Regenwald“, was founded in 1986 and is a non-governmental environmental organization with head office in Germany which advocates the preservation of rainforests at the global level. It is a politically independent organization that defends the inhabitants of the tropical rainforests and their living spaces. The work of the organization consists of launching petitions on its website and collecting donations for concrete projects in the affected tropical areas. The protest actions mainly deal with ecologic and social problems caused by the trade of tropical timber, gold mining, the expansion of industrial-scale monocultures, and land conflicts with indigenous populations.
The organization does not receive any subsidies from the state or local governments and its activities are exclusively financed through donations. Today around 3,500 sustaining members are supporting the organization’s work by annual donations, apart from thousands of sporadic donations every year. In November 2002 the journal Öko-Test investigated its handling of donations and awarded Rainforest Rescue with the grade “very good“.

Project Wings, a non-profit environmental organization, based in Germany, pursues a very special goal: the construction of a recycling village on the Indonesian island of Sumatra. Plastic pollution is a big issue here because of a missing garbage disposal system and the plastic waste import from western industrialized countries.
In order to free nature from plastic waste and to recycle it sensibly, Project Wings falls back on a well-known concept: Ecobricks. These are plastic bottles that are filled with collected and cleaned plastic waste. The Ecobricks are made by the locals themselves. They receive the equivalent of 29 cents each, enough money for a warm meal. With the help of this deposit system, over 40,000 Ecobricks have already been produced and collected. These Ecobricks build the foundation of the recycling village, which includes several hostels, a vegetarian restaurant, a soccer field, and other rooms for workshops. Above all, people with disabilities, who are often excluded from society, should work in the village. All income is reinvested directly in local projects.
In addition to the construction of the recycling village, Project Wings also cooperates with local organizations and campaigns, among other things, for the reforestation of the rainforest and the protection of Sumatran orangutans.
After the construction of the recycling village in Indonesia, further projects of this kind are to follow. Project Wings would like to be active especially in countries with similar problems and to stand up for people, animals, and the environment.

Pro Wildlife is an international non-profit animal welfare and conservation organization, based in Germany. The main goal of the association is the enforcement of better protection acts and measures for wild animals, whose population is threatened by poaching, hunting, animal trading, and the destruction of their habitats. The focus of the organization is on elephants, monkeys, dolphins, whales, sharks, reptiles, and amphibians.

Pro Wildlife rescues wild animals in need, saves dependencies, and raises the population´s awareness locally for the protection of wild animals. With political businesses, the organization impinges on laws and decisions to check the freebooting of nature. Moreover, they show up grievances and inform media, consumers, and politicians of current developments in wildlife conservation.
The most important projects and campaigns are for example fighting against animal smuggling, undercover against poachers, whaling in Norway, prohibition of wild animals in circuses, hunting kangaroos, and many more.

Large Marine Vertebrates Research Institute Philippines (LAMAVE) is a Filipino non-government organization dedicated to the conservation of marine megafauna. They activate governments, communities, and the next generation with science-based solutions to sustainably manage marine megafauna and their habitats in Southeast Asia. LAMAVE believes science, people, and knowledge are key to protecting the oceans and the species that call them home. The team, who comes from different backgrounds are united by a shared passion to ensure a secure and prosperous ocean for marine life and people. LAMAVE began in 2010 as a marine mammal research expedition in the Bohol Sea – an incredible deep water trench in Central Visayas with strong currents and upwellings. It quickly became obvious that the Bohol Sea was a hotspot for marine megafauna, hosting not only cetaceans but also whale sharks, manta rays, and turtles. They diversified their research efforts to encompass these other marine taxa. Over time the locations of LAMAVE´s research sites grew as well, expanding their conservation impact across the country.

The Nature and Biodiversity Conservation Union of Germany e. V. (NABU) is a German non-governmental organization with the aim of protecting nature and the environment. NABU implements concrete nature conservation at home and abroad. This includes the preservation of rivers, oceans, forests, and many other ecosystems as well as the protection of individual animal and plant groups and species. As one of the large, recognized nature conservation associations in Germany, it advocates good interaction between people and nature and is the national partner organization of BirdLife International.
The organization carries out concrete nature conservation projects, maintains its own research institutes, conducts environmental education, and informs the media and citizens about important issues in environmental protection and nature conservation. The main aim of NABU is to prevent environmental damage and to propose constructive, practicable solutions.
Members often engage in practical nature conservation on site: they plant hedges, erect toad fences (amphibian protection), and thus protect endangered species. They also manage more than 5.000 protected areas. The organization is also active internationally and helps, for example, to save Russia’s natural World Heritage Site or to save the last snow leopards from extinction in Kyrgyzstan.
