Fauna & Flora Discusses Xate

Our partner, Fauna & Flora International, published a piece on the heightened demand for the slow-growing xate palm around this time of year.

“As it’s Palm Sunday, we thought it a highly pertinent day to highlight the overexploitation of palms in Central America. Many people don’t realise the impact that global demand for palm leaves is having on some of the world’s most pristine rainforests.”  — Fauna & Flora International

Here’s a link to the post, we thank FFI for their support and partnership in this work.  Exposure, monitoring and providing constructive enterprise options to replace destructive ones are the way to fight this trend.
