Lagoon (Niigata, Japan)

In 2019, an artist group, “H・A-Fufu”, exhibited their work, “Nyugata” (New Lagoon) at Mizu-Tuchi Art Festival. The following is the explanation of their work.  
There used to be many lagoons in Niigata. However, many of them are no longer reclaimed due to the development of farming area. Out of nowhere new lagoon suddenly appeared. What kind of creatures live and what kind of life do they live in?

Respoinding to “H・A-Fufu” requests, I tried to express their theme with crayon drawing.

Bear Conservation: Piccio 1

Nature is oftentimes a blessing. But occasionally, it can be a threat.

The Asiatic black bear is a prime example of this. In our town, Karuizawa, we have been faced with the challenge of co-existing with these bears. This in turn has led us to consider our position in nature as humans.

At Picchio we have come to realise that for a sustainable future, we need to co-exist with nature. As well as valuing the beauty of wild animals, bears play an important role in the ecosystem. Losing them could have disastrous effects on us and our resources. For these reasons, we aim to conserve bears by reducing conflict with humans instead of eliminating them.

We have been carrying out the conservation and management of Asiatic black bears since 1998. As of 2000 we were entrusted with the upkeep of this work by Karuizawa Town and since have expanded our activities beyond the township. In terms of bear management, we are the only organisation in the whole of Asia known conduct these activities.

This is our goal. To create a place where humans and bears can live together in harmony, long into the future.

This goal can’t be realised by us alone. We need people like you to help us achieve such a future.
