On Monday 19th  August, All Gambia Farmers Platform held a meeting at their office criticising the alleged de-reservation of part of the Salagi Forest Park.

According to them, the ministry of the Environment has approved the de-reservation of part of the Salagi Forest Park, which they are opposed to.

Salagi Forest Park is one of the last forest parks standing within that area after the government had previously demarcated the Bijilo forest /monkey park for the construction of the OIC conference hall.

They say about 30 hectares of the Salagi Forest Park has been demarcated for the stationing of construction equipment.
