Requests for Nature Preservation Growing Louder

Date Posted: 1999-12-17

On Saturday, December 11th, there was a “WWF Seminar in Southeast Islands” with the theme of preserving nature and life for the next century. This conference was organized by the Worldwide Fund for Nature Japan, which oversees the activities of non-governmental organizations dedicated to nature preservation works.

During the conference, representatives from 8 nature protecting groups, such as forest conservation leagues, coral reef and wetland preservers.

The representatives each presented the results of their research activities and raised some issues concerning nature protection activities on the island. Among others, participants of the conference discussed the preservation of the Dugongs around Henoko, Nago area. The main problems on this issue are those of the methods of early protection and the preservation concerns related with relocation of MCAS Futenma.

One of the representatives also raised the issue of protection for the tideland in Okinawa. The representatives of the tideland protection group stressed that there are many creatures in tidelands, which cannot live in other environments other than their natural habitat in the tideland. They are now in danger of extinction due to the hazards of rapid development, and therefore in real need of protection.
