Scaling the world’s first Bird-Friendly-certified cacao farm
Zorzal is a 1,019-acre Bird-Friendly-certified cacao farm that finances the conservation of Bicknell's Thrush habitat by producing, sourcing and selling cacao. Wedgetail’s nature-linked loan enables Zorzal to purchase cacao from neighbouring farmers and helps them obtain certifications of their own.
