Some birds only hide in card packs. Card Packs is Birdables approach to replicate the real birding experience. Five Birdables cards (no duplicates) chosen at random. Packs are a great way to start or add to your Birdables collection!
Sure thing! The physical cards are 6.4cm (2.5 in) x 8.9cm (3.5 in), printed on high quality 100% recycled paper. These cards are just the right thickness to feel satisfyingly sturdy, yet have a slight bend. They also have a cross-hatch texture, giving it a crisp look and hand feel.
Great question, and YES! We donate a portion of profits to a bird conservation organizations like the Cornell Lab of Ornithology , eBird , Audubon , and other. As the business gets off the ground (pun intended), we'll share more details on our site, including donation amounts and recipients.
To ensure Birdables is not contributing to the destruction of bird habitats, we only use 100% recycled paper for all physical cards. No trees are cut down for the creation of Birdables.
The Birdables NFT's (digital cards) are minted and distributed on the Polygon blockchain, which validates transactions using the Proof-of-Stake consensus model. This model consumes far less energy than the Proof-of Work model.
