Activity to Support Tohoku Region
We support to build a “forest seawall” in Tohoku, a stricken area of the Great East Japan Earthquake. The forest seawall created along the Sanriku shore will help to reduce its impact of tsunami, if happens, and stop people and property from being carried out to sea. Acorns gathered in Tohoku are being grown at Sango Plants. Once the acorns grow into seedlings after 2-3 years, they are returned to Tohoku to be planted there in tree planting activity.
Removal of Invasive Alien Species (Coreopsis lanceolata)
In Miyoshi city, Aichi, we hold Coreopsis lanceolate (or "tickseed") removal campaign. Because of its aggressive growth drives native Japanese species out, the flower is designated as an invasive alien species. To prevent the further spread of alien species into Japan, we promote activities in cooperation with local communities and government.
Support for the Special Olympics in 2019
In the Special Olympics Japan - Summer District Games held for people with mental disabilities, members of the Sango sports clubs have participated as operating staff to support setting up the site and to referee games. We are cooperating through sports to create a more livable society for people with disabilities.
Activities in Rice Field
In the rice fields located at ECO35 in Nagoya city, elementary school students are invited to a hands-on experience of rice planting and harvesting as part of an environmental education. The adjoining wooded area and biotopes also become a school where they can encounter a variety of living things and learn about the ecosystem.
