Forest Conservation Past and Present

  • Claude Martin


Forest inhabitants present the first sip of every calabash brimming with palm wine to their ancestors, allowing it to trickle into the ground as symbol of gratitude for the land and hunting grounds left to their use. Neither will a son unthinkingly sell his mother’s hut. These people know the value of their old drums and of the forest which has supported them and their family for generations.
