Welcome to gThe Kuchino-Erabu Senior Group" (Environmental Protection Group) of Kuchinoerabu-jima Island.
|Environmental Protection Activities
The Erabu Senior Group had been active in trying to protect the natural environment in Kuchinoerabu-jima so that people could live on the island and enjoy its rewards.
We would like to reconcile the conservation of biodiversity, the quest for economic and social development and the maintenance of associated cultural values. This is the same to the ideal of UNESCOfs Biosphere Reserves (BR).
Our dream had come true! In 2016, that Kuchinoerabu-jima was registered as
one of UNESCO's Biosphere Reserves .
Kuchinoerabu-jima is a small island with an active volcano, no industries and no companies.
The entirety Kuchinoerabu-jima is designated as a national park. It is a rich natural
environment and several hot springs.
This site has been maintained by Erabu Senior Group.
