2: We have made contact with the politicians in the Bankouale valley and established their recognition of the palm as a valuable asset in the landscape, their wish to preserve it, and the extent of their actions already undertaken to put this into effect.
3: We are in the process of submitting a proposal to the Darwin Initiative which will include the conservation of the Bankouale Palm as part of a wider project for the conservation of the Foret du Dai and its environs.
