Outline of the Oze Preservation Foundation
Objectives of the foundation
- Provides a forum for discussions between relevant parties.
- Helps to centralize Oze’s conservation activities.
- Provides a new model for national park management and conservation.
The nature of Oze is a precious asset that should be passed on to our ancestors and appreciated by our children. Oze has been protected due to various conservation activities and is said to be the starting point of nature conservation in Japan.
It is our responsibility to protect the nature of Oze as a national treasure for the future. We expect that the foundation will play a basic role in making efforts to ensure that humans live symbiotically with Oze’s rich natural environment.
