Wetlands International Japan is a registered Non-Profit Organisation.

Our Objectives:

1. To promote the conservation of the biodiversity of important wetlands in Japan and abroad.
2. To raise awareness on the importance of wetlands and their ecosystems.
3. To contribute towards the conservation of the global environment through its activities.


The history of Wetlands International Japan began with the establishment of the Japan office for the International Waterfowl and Wetlands Research Bureau (IWRB) in 1977.

The office was renamed as Wetlands International Japan following the merger of IWRB and other international wetlands-related organisations in 1994. 10 years later, WIJ was officially registered as NPO, Non-Profitable Organization.
