Land Trust obtains Miyako land for environmental preservation

Date Posted: 2008-04-25

An organization committed to acquiring lands to preserve and protect nature and the environment has gotten a welcome foothold on Miyako Island.

The Association of Japan National Trust says a Miyakojima City waste land owner living in Tokyo has donated his property free to the association. The manís generosity is being praised, because the land is home to an endangered bird species, the Sashiba, a hawk. The birds migrate to Miyako from the south en route to mainland Japan.

Miyakojima City is rapidly developing, with construction under way on new hotels and golf courses, and the Trust group says the newly donated land will now be protected. It says nobody will be permitted to build any hotels or other structures on the land. The donation was a 9,500 square meter piece of property.

The Association of Japan National Trust first began in England in 1895, spreading to Japan in 1992. The groupís objective is to curb destroying trees and wildlife on property. In mainland Japan, the Trust says, private individuals and companies are now making land donations to preserve it in a natural state.
