Welcome to the Untamed Elephants, a community dedicated to using NFTs, art, and cutting-edge tech to raise money for African and Asian elephants.
If you're an elephant lover, artist, entrepreneur, or creator, we'd love to have you in our herd. All it takes is to buy one of our NFTs or join our Discord and say hi.
If you're not familiar with NFTs, we'd love to be your first one and are happy to help you get started.
In the elephant community, matriarchs lead the herd. We are excited to announce our new NFT collection, the Untamed Matriarchs, with a new artist, new traits, and bold (but familiar) design.
There are two ways to get a Matriarch. First, if you own two Untamed Elephants + an Untamed Companion, you can claim one for free. Otherwise, you can purchase during our public sale.
Untamed Companions are the messenger birds of the Untamed Elephants universe. You can claim one for free if you have the right Elephant (check the Claim button to see).

Elephants are among the most intelligent of the creatures with whom we share the planet, with complex consciousnesses that are capable of strong emotions. Across Africa and Asia they have inspired respect from the people that share the landscape with them, giving them a strong cultural significance. As icons of the continent elephants are tourism magnets, attracting funding that helps protect wilderness areas. They are also keystone species, playing an important role in maintaining the biodiversity of the ecosystems in which they live.
During the dry seasons, elephants use their tusks to dig for water. This not only allows the elephants to survive in dry environment and when droughts strike, but also provides water for other animals that share harsh habitats.
When forest elephants eat, they create gaps in the vegetation. These gaps allow new plants to grow and create pathways for other smaller animals to use. They are also one of the major ways in which trees disperse their seeds; some species rely entirely upon elephants for seed dispersal.
On the savannahs, elephants feeding on tree sprouts and shrubs help to keep the plains open and able to support the plains game that inhabit these ecosystems.
Wherever they live, elephants leave dung that is full of seeds from the many plants they eat. When this dung is deposited the seeds are sown and grow into new grasses, bushes and trees, boosting the health of the savannah ecosystem.
We look forward to working with artists, photographers, creators, game designers, brands, and authors to expand our herd and raise more money for our charity partners. If you're interested in breaking into the world of NFTs, contact us!

Untamed Elephants is led by a professional, accountable, and non-anonymous team with decades of experience in media, games, comics, art, and tech.
The best way is to make a name for yourself in our Discord or to make a big introduction to a potential partner that leads to something special. We also let members teach classes to the community and volunter for important roles.
We work closely with three key elephant charity partners, two focused on African elephants (Save The Elephants and Elephant Crisis Fund) and one on Asian elephants (Saving Ganesh). Rather than simply make donations, we foster a mutual, two-way relationship.
