Europe's most iconic migratory bird species are disappearing like never before.
In the UK, Turtle Dove numbers have declined by 95% between 1992-2017. Nightingale numbers by 56% between 1995?2018.
And these kinds of dramatic population declines are being seen all over the continent.
Birds simply aren't returning from their wintering grounds any more.
From Cyprus to Egypt, Lebanon to Syria, these beautiful creatures are being illegally taken and killed on an almost unimaginable scale.
In the Famagusta region of Cyprus alone, a staggering 400,000-1 million individuals will disappear forever this year. And next year. And the year after that.
This, combined with widespread habitat loss through shifting land use patterns and unchecked climate change fuelled by human activity, means Europe is facing a full-blown environmental crisis.
The hard truth is: this just isn't sustainable.
But, all is not lost.
A new frontline has opened up. One powered by the intersection of technology and creativity, and it's offering fresh hope.
Unwilling to stand by and watch as Europe's migratory bird numbers dwindle away to nothing, an all-star cast of NFT artists and scientists from around the world are coming together to say enough is enough. Something must be done.
Their goal? To investigate how blockchain can help tackle some of the most pressing environmental issues we face today.
