Zorzal

Scaling the world’s first Bird-Friendly-certified cacao farm

Project summary

Zorzal is dedicated to using cacao to finance the conservation of Bicknell's Thrush habitat. The majority of the 1,019-acre reserve is left ‘forever wild’, while other sections are used to grow cacao that is then harvested at an off-site facility. Wedgetail’s investment supports Zorzal in scaling its operations by purchasing Bird-Friendly Cacao from neighbouring farms and supporting these farmers in adopting biodiversity practices.
