Opening an account for donations towards Aso Geopark's recovery

The 2016 Kumamoto earthquakes caused serious damage across Kumamoto and Oita prefectures, including many areas within Aso UNESCO Global Geopark. Valuable geo-sites are among the areas that suffered damage. We deeply appreciate the many heartwarming messages of encouragement and wishes for Aso Geopark’s recovery that we have received from Japan and abroad since the earthquakes. They have comforted our community in a difficult time. In order to accept the support that many of you have offered, we have opened an account for donations towards Aso Geopark’s recovery. The donations will be used to restore and maintain existing geo-sites, create new geo-sites focused on the risks related to our region’s geology, and revitalize our community through the continuation of Geopark activities. Thank you again for your support.
