PROJECT Ice Floe Preservation Project
Sponsored by the Okhotsk Ice Floe Trust Movement, Okhotsk General Subprefectural Bureau, Hokkaido
VISION Why we should act to preserve ice floes now
Ice floes are not only beautiful, but also enrich seas and nature by bringing abundant nutrients known as ice algae from oceans in the far north.
In recent years, the number and area of ice floes have decreased significantly due to global warming.
There are fears that ice floes will disappear in the future, which will have a significant impact on local industries, including the destruction of rich ecosystems and reduction in fish catches.
ABOUT What is the Okhotsk Ice Floe Trust Movement and Support Group?
The Okhotsk Ice Floe Trust Movement is an environmental preservation activity with the goal of preserving ice floes in the Sea of Okhotsk from the threat of global warming and other environmental problems with the slogan "Preserve Ice Floes! Save the ice save the earth".
The Okhotsk Ice Floe Trust Movement has established a support group in order to promote sustainable regional development as a region-wide effort in cooperation with local governments and businesses.
We, the East Hokkaido Path to Natural Beauty DMO, are a member of the Okhotsk Ice Floe Trust Movement and Support Group.
