The World Wildlife Fund UK launched a line of NFTs called “nonfungible animals,” or NFAs, this week.

The digital art centers on 13 endangered animals, and each NFA is limited to that species’ population. That means there are two Northern white rhino and about 1,800 giant panda NFAs available. Other animals include the Amur leopard, the vaquita and the African wild dog.
