Conservation status in Cameroon.

Pandanus satabiei   was not assessed by Onana and Cheek (2011) nor listed on http://www.iucnredlist.org. The taxon is endemic to Cameroon and currently known from five localities. The extent of occurrence of this species is about 2,900 km2 and the area of occupancy is about 20 km2. Human settlements are developing around one collecting locality; also arable farming is in progress along the rivers. Based on these threats, and the continuous decline of vegetation cover in the area, extentand /or quality of habitat, P. satabiei   is here assessed as Endangered. IUCN Red List Category: Endangered EN B1+2ab (ii, iii).
