|Butterfly Society of Japan|
|Hello! I was selected as the new president (2011-2013) last June. As the
last president Dr. YATA Osamu did, I also would like to do my best to encourage
our society more globally open. Especially our society is seeking good
relationship and collaboration with Asian countries. As the first project
on this respect, our society started the joint research on butterfly fauna
of Bhutan with Bhutanese government from last summer. I need warm help
and understanding from all of the BSJ members. On our journal Butterflies
we will make every effort to make it much more interesting. As Japan is
facing an extremely aging society, our society is also resisting the trend.
I will try my best to make our society sustainable and prosperous.
Thank you for your kind help.
