The destruction of rainforest in South East Asia for conversion to palm oil plantations (to make our chocolate) is causing the loss of wild animals like tigers and orangutans.
With Easter approaching, the Auckland Zoo in New Zealand has published a list of palm-oil free chocolate goodies that can be eaten at Easter without any contribution to the ongoing loss of wild animals.
They say food products like Lindt chocolate bunnies are free of palm oil, and therefore acceptable to eat.
There are only about 400 wild Sumatran tigers left in their natural habitat, which is rapidly being converted to palm oil agriculture.
