Across Virunga National Park, innovation and technology are key to fulfilling our conservation and sustainable development aims. In addition to physical technology, we continually track advancements in digital that can help us better connect with our supporters and be used for the greater good. Crypto-donations deliver on both these fronts.
As well as being native to digital landscapes, many people invested in cryptocurrencies exhibit an affinity for the natural world and a strong sense of social justice. By accepting crypto-donations, we make it easier for tech-minded, eco-conscious individuals to directly donate cryptocurrency to Virunga in a tax- efficient way.
Crypto-donations are used in much the same way as conventional donations. They help to conserve mountain gorillas and the Park’s rich-biodiversity, support sustainable development projects, such as the building of renewable energy sources, and ensure the continued presence of Rangers, the guardians of the Park’s long- term survival.
