Conservation Actions [top]

Conservation Actions: Annual monitoring of the three sites is required to determine numbers of individuals, signs of damage to plants, and regeneration. Afua should be revisited to confirm that this species has indeed disappeared from the area. Similar sites to those already known should be searched for to discover potential new locations. Some evidence of fire scorching on the Afua specimens was noted, therefore some burning at the correct season may be required in management of habitat for this species or important for promoting flowering. Propagation by seed and replanting in, for example, Afua Swamp may be considered.
