I have been a member of Wetlands International Japan since June 2012. My work is support for the nationwide long-term monitoring survey on coastal regions (rocky shore, tidal flats, seagrass beds and algal beds). The project name is the Monitoring Sites 1000 Project by the Biodiversity Center of Japan.
When I was student at the Ryukyu University, I majored in the conservation genetics of marine organisms and was engaged in research aiming to conserve species considering the meta-population structure among islands. Additionally, my doctoral thesis was a survey for the inter-populational variations on the endangered fiddler crab, such as the life history traits and genetic structures. Currently, my main interest is the how to conserve the tidal flats.
