No, Unchained Elephants is not a non-profit organization. We operate as a social impact initiative with a unique approach. The utility of funds depends on specific campaigns, such as rescue missions, educational programs, and the development of elephant-friendly initiatives. Additionally, since our NFTs are tradable, you have the opportunity to sell them to someone else, contributing further to our ongoing initiatives. Your support directly fuels positive change for elephants in need.

Unchained Elephants is a transformative project dedicated to rescuing elephants from the harsh conditions of the entertainment industry and promoting responsible tourism in Thailand. Our mission involves creating lasting change through education, NFT initiatives, and on-the-ground rescue efforts.

Since our rebranding in March 2023, Unchained Elephants has successfully rescued two elephants in Thailand from dire conditions. In September 2023, we rescued Kanoon, a bull elephant, from a garbage dump (though he sadly passed away after three months in freedom). In December, we rescued Kham Phaneg, an elderly and almost toothless female elephant who was still being used for trekking in Pattaya. Both elephants endured harsh conditions, and these rescues mark the beginning of our impactful efforts to improve the welfare of elephants in Thailand.

The Ethical Elephant Sanctuaries (EES) platform is a comprehensive marketplace that empowers sanctuaries and ethical elephant-related establishments in Thailand. Serving as a centralized hub, it enables these venues to effectively promote their offerings and streamline the booking process for travelers. 

Through the EES platform, sanctuaries gain increased visibility and reach, showcasing their commitment to elephant welfare and responsible tourism practices. 

Ethical Elephant Sanctuaries Platform not only raises awareness but also makes it easy for travelers. Our platform provides a seamless booking experience, offering insights into each sanctuary’s mission and practices, allowing travelers to make secure reservations directly, and ensuring a meaningful and responsible elephant encounter.

By bridging the gap between ethical sanctuaries and eco-conscious travelers, the EES platform fosters a symbiotic relationship that prioritizes the well-being of elephants and promotes sustainable tourism practices in Thailand.

The educational program launched by Unchained Elephants will leverage the unique elephant characters of the 2nd NFT collection (coming soon), a kids-friendly version as engaging teaching tools. Through interactive storytelling content and activities, children will immerse themselves in an inspiring journey to learn about elephants, conservation, and the importance of responsible tourism. By incorporating the Unchained Elephant characters, the program aims to foster empathy, inspire action, and empower the next generation to become advocates for elephant welfare in Thailand and beyond.

As we gear up for our third elephant rescue mission, the success of our endeavor hinges on the sales of our NFTs. Securing funds for elephant rescues are crucial, considering the significant costs involved, with prices ranging from $20,000 to $80,000 per elephant due to their classification as assets. Currently, we’re evaluating two potential rescue cases, emphasizing the urgency and importance of our ongoing fundraising efforts through the sale of our NFTs.

The utilization of funds depends on the ongoing campaign. In general, Unchained Elephants allocates generated funds for various purposes, including developing an elephant-friendly venue platform, launching a kid-friendly educational program, facilitating the rescue of elephants, and laying the foundation for an Elephant Welfare Education Centre. Each campaign is carefully tailored to make a positive and lasting impact on elephant welfare.

The project was born in February 2022 under the name XRP Herd, initially focusing on addressing the immediate needs of elephants affected by the pandemic. In March 2023, we rebranded to Unchained Elephants to align with our expanded mission.

Unchained Elephants utilizes NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) as a creative and innovative way to generate funds for our mission of rescuing and providing better lives for elephants. NFTs represent unique digital assets, and by offering exclusive digital collectibles, we not only raise awareness about elephant welfare but also involve our community in making a positive impact. Beyond this, NFTs provide unique opportunities, including licensing through intellectual property (IP) and other exclusive perks. Each NFT purchase contributes directly to our cause, allowing us to rescue and care for elephants in need. It’s a modern approach that combines technology, art, and compassion to create a lasting change for elephants.


Unchained Elephants’ NFT collection is a multi-chain collection distributed across ICP, AVAX, and XRPL, featuring 3,333 unique NFTs on each blockchain.
