Biodiversity conservation activities

Many rare species and endangered species including fresh-water medusa and carassius auratus buergeri live in Nakanonuma-pond (Nishinuma), a pond near our Tatebayashi Plant located in Ora-machi, Ora-gun, Gunma. We support the conservation activities in Ora-machi sending our staffs to support foreign species control activities conducted by the town. We also conduct patrols around the pond once a week to improve the manners of anglers and to protect the natural environment in the areas where fishing is prohibited.
