Comments:
the number of Kokia in the over-all canyon region appears to have dwindled down to these three in Kawai`iki & the single tree in Koai’e [4 total]. A survey for evaluating the conservation status of any other remaining individuals in the canyon should be a priority. Continue seed collections from all wild individuals.
