Pablo’s Hippos | Pre-Sale
We are hosting our first public pre-sale! Our NFTs are a vibrant hand drawn collection of artwork representing Pablo Escobar’s escaped hippos which are impacting the ecology of the River Magdalena. Our mission is to raise awareness, facilitate discussion, and help fund solutions to the dilemmas facing Pablo’s hippos. We will do this by creating unique, visually stunning art and a decentralized governance system that gives a voice to our community. In the late 1970s, the notorious leader of the Medellín Cartel, Pablo Escobar, kept a small number of hippos in his private zoo. Upon his death, the hippos escaped into nearby waterways and proliferated.Today, their population has ballooned to approximately 120. Now, the debate rages on about what environmental and ecological impact the hippos are having and how best to protect the hippos, the native citizens and the land. That’s where we come in.
