So what is the conservation area name?

There is still no official name for the conservation area on Kolombangara above 400m altitude. The competition to find a Nduke name was very popular. KIBCA received 130 entries. They contained many old stories about Kolombangara and its culture. Most people were happy to give the conservation area a new name, but some were not. There was confusion that KIBCA was renaming existing features like Mt Rano or even Kolombangara Island. This was never the plan. Since the naming was sensitive, the KIBCA Executive decided to delay the naming until more awareness meetings are held with Kolombangara people.
