Survey of Resources in the Plant Area
This survey aims to identify patterns of changes in natural monuments (such as ancient, gigantic trees and forest areas, etc.) to offer systematic management measures.
Research on Traditional Landscapes
We conduct research with the goal of laying the academic groundwork for conserving and managing famous traditional landscapes and natural protection areas. Since 2006, the CHA has planned measures for activating the designation of famous landscapes and their protection.
Survey of Resources in the Geological Area
We aim to conduct research on and monitor Natural Monuments (sedimentary structures and fossils) and to survey such resources with a view to proposing heritage conservation measures.
