Agriculture ministry seeks rare mango plants

GIS: Persons Who Own Any Rare Mango Species are Asked to Contact The Department of Forestry.

The Department of Forestry, through the Global Climate Change Alliance (GCCA) and the OECS would like to inform the general public of the ongoing Mango Biodiversity Project.

The primary objective of the project is to improve Sustainable Land Management through the cultivation of a variety of mango species along riverbanks, within farmlands, and within particular forest reserves.

In light of this, the department seeks the assistance of the general public in locating rare mango plants in an effort to recover these rare species for replanting and rehabilitation purposes. Some rare mango species includes Mango Tin Crem, Mango Tin, Mango De Wi Dou, Mango Ti Khaki, Mango Jupar, Mango Bwelai Jhorl, Mango Jabal, Mango Cocoa Bef, Mango Vere, etc.

Persons who own these species or any other rare mango species, or who may be aware of where these species can be located, are kindly asked to contact the Department of Forestry at 758.716.5198.
