WWF Japan works on various conservation projects both nationally and internationally that Japan has significant humanity’s impacts on Forests, Marine, Wildlife and climate change. The current marine campaigns include: Conserving the Yellow Sea Ecoregion, surrounded by China and the Korean Peninsula, through conducting scientific biodiversity assessments to identify high conservation value areas and working together with local community groups to achieve sustainable exploitation of marine resources; Restoring Nansei Islands while strengthening local communities’ ability to conserve the natural resources they depend on; and, bringing conservation into fisheries management by improving fisheries practice, recusing the impacts of fishing and promoting the consumption of MSC (Marine Stewardship Council) and ASC (Aquaculture Stewardship Council) certified sustainable seafood.
