Explanation of Guidelines

Our Biodiversity Conservation and Utilization Guidelines (tentative name) will be a concrete summary of the characteristics of the natural environment, the course of action that should be taken to preserve it, and important factors to consider in its use, all aimed at designing a means for the coexistence of conservation and use.

We plan to compile information on the distribution of plants and animals throughout Okinawa, from the main island to the most remote outlying islands, and divide the findings into units called standard area meshes plotted on a map.

We will begin publishing our volume on Okinawa’s main island in April 2019, and will subsequently enrich our data with volumes on the Yaeyama Islands, Miyako Islands, Okinawa Island’s outlying islands, and Daito Islands.
