Eric Johnson is a cocoa farmer on the island of Tobago. He tells us that until the age of 10, he hardly saw his father since he was wiping the plantation when the sun had not yet risen and returned at dusk. When he was 10 years old, he woke up when he heard his father leave and begged him in tears and pleas to let him accompany him. Until today. He is 58 years old and as he tells us he only feels happy when he is working in his forest and in his cocoa plantation. However, not everything is happiness. A plague of parrots and squirrels decimate his work and precious fruits. And he doesn't know what to do anymore. He has tried everything. That is why when it intersects with any of the many snakes that inhabit its plantation, it takes care of them, it even removes their ticks so that they continue with their natural task and manage to reduce the plague that they suffer in his cocoa plantation. #bioversity international #cocoa #finecocoa #plague #squirrelplague #parrotplague #cocoaestate #snake #mangosnake #pythonsnake #cocoafarmer #trinidadandtobago
