China & the Hunt for Ghana's Red Gold


What happened to Ghana’s rosewood forests?

Communities under threat. Forests destroyed. Ecosystems polluted. Livelihoods lost. And one of the world’s most precious tree species pushed closer to extinction.

China’s insatiable appetite for protected rosewood demonstrates once again their lack of respect for Africa’s people, heritage and precious resources.

In the first of our Beyond The Headlines series, Africa Verified investigates the impact of illegal rosewood logging on local people, their livelihoods and the future of their communities.

All without agenda or judgement. Just clarity and verification.
