Cash-Honey was a pilot project implemented in 2010 by James Burke that provided training and equipment to strengthen rural livelihoods in northern Sierra Leone through sustainable apiculture. By supplementing traditional honey "hunting" methods with improved beekeeping and farming practices, Cash-Honey stimulated economic growth within these communities while also helping to protect the biodiversity and habitat of local forest systems, including threatened populations of chimpanzees.
