Japan | Natuur

Samen met 6 andere vrijwilligers ga je voor 6 dagen naar een natuurproject.
Het project duurt van 28 april t/m 4 mei.

Volunteers will do various types of nature conservation works such as 1) transplanting the seedlings 2) seeding for growing nursery trees, 3) arranging the environment for seeding beds and so on. Work might be changed due to weather condition, we need to be flexible!
Shared room in old elementary school. Sleeping bag is needed! Meals will be cooked by volunteers by turns.
We will work in Ajigasawa town and Hiranai town in Aomori prefecture. Aomori is located on the northernmost tip of Honshu Island. Shirakami Mountains located in southwest and the Mutsu-bay nestles between the eastern Shimokita and western Tsugaru Peninsulas. This is the good season for cherry blossom-viewing there.
This project is organized together with Shirakami Mountains Preservation Society (SMPS), since 2006. The Shirakami Mountains is one of Japanese valuable preserved natural forests consisting primarily of beech trees, registered as a World Natural Heritage in 1993. SMPS aims to preserve the natural beauty of the Shirakami Mountains by nurturing seedlings of beech trees, planting them, training mountain guide, etc. SMPS hosts tree-planting ceremony every June for preserving beech forests and promoting the value. They also preserve the forests near the Mutsu-bay, famous as production of scallops. Due to climate change, the sea water temperature increased abnormally in 2010, the most of scallops were dead, so SMPS started to preserve the forest there to let nutrient water flow to the ocean.
Volunteers should be prepare to work hard outside in good and bad weather and have high motivation for work in the forests actively with local people.
