A lovely, rare songbird native to Ontario, Québec & the Maritimes, the Zorzal is threatened with extinction, but a team of conservationists and the local community are fighting for it in its winter home in the Dominican Republic. They've created a 300 ha biodiversity sanctuary in the northern highlands to safeguard the bird’s habitat.
As sustainably grown cacao supports the sanctuary, we’ll hear the Zorzal’s song for a long time to come. Run on the best principles of agriculture and sustainability, this extraordinary bird sanctuary is making a difference - and making great cacao.
Smooth like honey with hints of apricot and pecan.
