MATA ATLÂNTICA CHOCOLATE
Wild & Gold – Cocoa from the forests of the golden-headed lion tamarin
AMAP donates all proceeds from Mata Atlântica chocolate to forest and climate protection projects on the Brazilian cocoa coast. Thus, the purchase of this chocolate helps to protect the Mata Atlântica rainforest – the habitat of the golden-headed lion tamarin.
AMAP Germany (Almada Mata Atlântica Project) is a non-profit conservation organization focused on protecting the golden-headed lion tamarin, which are classified as critically endangered by the IUCN. Their only habitat, the Atlantic rainforest on the Brazilian cocoa coast, has now been reduced to a minimum – more than 90 percent has already been destroyed. Through land acquisition, reforestation, sustainable-ecological cacao cultivation and protected area designation, AMAP promotes the conservation and expansion of the already highly fragmented habitat of the Mata Atlântica for people and nature. The starting point of the activities in the action area and the headquarters of AMAP Brazil is the Fazenda Bom Pastor not far from the Almada River.
