Why don’t you participate in our conservation activities by burying the protected eggs in an artificial hatching site at the Marine Center with your own hands?


Period: June 20 – September (*This is just a rough estimate)


Date and time: Any time while eggs are available at the Marine Center (first come, first served)


Participation fee: 3,000 yen per nest (40 eggs) (tax included)


Note: Participants will meet and disperse at the site, so please make your own arrangements for transportation.

Please refer to Access for directions to the Ogasawara Marine Center.

We will be working in an artificial hatchery (sandbox), so please wear clothes and footwear that are comfortable to move around in and that can get sandy.
