Blessings Of The Forest C.I.C

× Our mission

The management of Blessings of the Forest CIC would like to emphasise that our social organisation is above all dedicated to the conservation, study and sustainable/equitable development of Gabon's natural and cultural heritage as a whole. If iboga is a central pillar of our commitment, notably because of the sacred symbolism it has in the Gabonese Republic, making it a genetic resource to be protected as a priority, BOTF CIC would not recommend that anyone infringe the law in force in Gabon and internationally regarding the export/import, possession, consumption, promotion or marketing of iboga. Moreover, since 4 February 2019, the export of iboga has been totally suspended as a precautionary measure in the Gabonese Republic and BOTF is no stranger to the legal text adopted. Our purpose is fundamentaly linked to the Nagoya Protocol, an international agreement on biodiversity ratified by Gabon in November 2011 and entered into force on 14 October 2014.

The Iboga trees planted directly as a result of your donations in the heart of the community forests supported by BOTF are listed separately from those planted by the village communities who have taken the initiative to invest in the Iboga plantations as a result of our awareness campaigns and without our financial support, but who wish to participate in time in the agricultural cooperative programme labelled "equitable & sustainable", which is just as committed to the Gabonese national market as it is to exportation (under the control of the laws in place in the requesting countries).
