We would like to have a paid membership organisation when we open to the public, however this will take another two or three more years to set up.

In the meantime — as a first step — we are starting a small (email-list based) 'friends and volunteers' group. Those who sign up will be invited to come on tours and asked to help identify wildlife species. (There will be no charge for joining, though we might charge for particular events.) 


If you are interested in participating — as a founder member! — please write to me (in either English or Japanese): Simon.Holledge (at)
