SATO YAMA UMI Project is implemented by three organizations each having wide range of experiences in environmental conservation globally. The project takes advantage of the knowledge and features of those organizations.

■Japan Environmental Education Forum

Japan Environmental Education Forum (JEEF) was established in 1992. Environmental Education through nature experiences helps to foster better relationships between person, nature and society. It creates our visions of and approaches to alternative lifestyles more rooted to local communities and enhances the quality of our society.  Therefore, our major goal is developing sustainable society through promotion of environmental education, capacity building of human resources on environmental education, and supporting and implementing environmental education in developing countries in Asia.

■BirdLife International

BirdLife International (BL) was founded in Cambridge, UK in 1922 as an environmental international NGO. Together there are 122 BirdLife Partners worldwide. We promote science-driven biodiversity conservation actions using birds as indicators. Recently, our efforts have expanded into a wide range of global conservation activities based on our four strategic pillars: “Save species” and “Conserve Sites & Habitats” prevent extinction in the wild. “Ecological Sustainability” and “Positive Change for People” disseminate conservation activities that enrich the quality of people’s lives.

■Conservation International

Conservation International (CI) is working around the globe to protect nature for the benefit of us all. CI’s science-based, high-impact approach brings us to the world’s most extraordinary landscapes and seascapes that hold the critical biodiversity on which all humanity depends. Most of our team—nearly 1,000 dedicated conservationists—works in program offices throughout Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Pacific, where we collaborate with communities, businesses and governments in order to create a healthy, prosperous world.
