The RSPB has just launched Gola Rainforest Chocolate.
It’s made from sustainable, ethical and environmentally conscious cocoa. And it’s grown in the shade of forest trees by communities living around Sierra Leone’s Gola Rainforest National Park.
It’s really important to help farmers earn a living without encroaching on the rainforest. Local farmers are farming in ways that helps forest wildlife. Many endangered species live in the forest, such as pygmy hippos, forest elephants, chimpanzees and over 300 bird and 600 butterfly species, so it’s a very important hotspot for biodiversity.
The RSPB has been working with local partners on a sustainable management model for the Gola Rainforest.
