IUCN
The International Union for Conservation of Nature
International Union for Conservation of Nature
(IUCN; officially International Union for Conservation of Nature
International Union for Conservation of Nature
and Natural Resources[2]) is an international organization working in the field of nature conservation and sustainable use of natural resources. It is involved in data gathering and analysis, research, field projects, advocacy, and education. IUCN's mission is to "influence, encourage and assist societies throughout the world to conserve nature and to ensure that any use of natural resources is equitable and ecologically sustainable". Over the past decades, IUCN has widened its focus beyond conservation ecology and now incorporates issues related to sustainable development in its projects. Unlike many other international environmental organisations, IUCN does not itself aim to mobilize the public in support of nature conservation

Mudflow
A mudflow or mud flow is a form of mass wasting involving "very rapid to extremely rapid surging flow"[1] of debris that has become partially or fully liquified by the addition of significant amounts of water to the source material.[2] Mudflows contain a significant proportion of clay, which makes them more fluid than debris flows; thus, they are able to travel farther and across lower slope angles

National Park
A national park is a park in use for conservation purposes. Often it is a reserve of natural, semi-natural, or developed land that a sovereign state declares or owns. Although individual nations designate their own national parks differently, there is a common idea: the conservation of 'wild nature' for posterity and as a symbol of national pride.[1] An international organization, the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN), and its World Commission on Protected Areas, has defined "National Park" as its Category II type of protected areas. While this type of national park had been proposed previously, the United States established the first "public park or pleasuring-ground for the benefit and enjoyment of the people", Yellowstone National Park, in 1872.[2] Although Yellowstone was not officially termed a "national park" in its establishing law, it was always termed such in practice[3] and is widely held to be the first and oldest national park in the world

Hokkaidō
Koma-ga-take), also Oshima Koma-ga-take (渡島駒ヶ岳), Oshima Fuji (渡島富士), or just Koma-ga-take (駒ヶ岳) is a 1131-meter adesitic stratovolcano[1] on the border between Mori, Shikabe, and Nanae, Hokkaidō, Japan. Occurrence of volcanic activity started some 30000 years ago. Following roughly 5000 years of dormancy, volcanic activity at Mount Koma-ga-take restarted at the start of the 17th century, triggering the Kan'ei Great Famine in 1640. Since then, there have been at least 50 recorded volcanic events at Mount Koma-ga-take.[2]Relief MapViewed from NW.Viewed from ESE.References[edit]^ "HOKKAIDO KOMA-GA-TAKE". Quaternary

Setonaikai National Park
(瀬戸内海国立公園, Setonaikai Kokuritsu Kōen) is a national park comprising areas of Japan's Inland Sea and of ten bordering Prefectures. Designated a national park in 1934, it has since been expanded several times. It contains about 3,000 islands, including the well-known Itsukushima. As the park is formed of many non-contiguous areas, and covering a tiny proportion of the Inland Sea's total extent, control and protection is problematic, with much of the wider area heavily industrialized.[2][3]Contents1 History 2 Climate 3 Sites 4 Facilities 5 Natural areas 6 Cultural sites 7 Related municipalities 8 See also 9 References 10 External linksHistory[edit] In 1934, when the park was designated as the first national park in Japan, the area was much smaller than the area is now.
