JTEF Submits Comments to IUCN as Iriomote Applies to Become a World Heritage Site

The Japanese Government has nominated Iriomote Island as a World Heritage Site. (Officially nominating “Amami-Oshima Island, Tokunoshima Island, the northern part of Okinawa Island and Iriomote Island” for inscription on the World Heritage List.) JTEF has issued a short report in response to the Japanese Government’s nomination proposal, compiling the most recent data and analyzing relevant information. The contents of the report are quite useful for IUCN’s evaluation of the natural heritage nomination & we hope they are taken into consideration during the evaluation process.
