There is a need to protect the Argania forest and many initiatives have been put in place to help preserve and propagate the Argania forest to reverse its regression. Many cooperatives have been created in order to save this priceless resource. The cooperatives consist of and are managed solely by the women of the area. They provide them with a supplementary source of income as well as teaching them how to harvest the fruit while at the same time respecting and preserving the forest. Each woman participates in replanting the forest and agrees to plant 10 argan trees a year. Fair trade and sustainable development are the foundation of these initiatives.
