Young Member Group

About us

The members of Japanese Coral Reef Society (JCRS) participate from various fields and positions, and it is important to have horizontal connections to develop our research and preservation activities of coral reefs. In the Young Member group of JCRS, we create opportunities for JCRS young members to interact across disciplines with each other, and also conduct activities for the purpose of the following three points.

1. Advance skills for research and outreach activity
2. Boost our community, and bring up the next generation
3. Interact with outside community



・Regular meetings in Tokyo and Okinawa

・Information exchange on a mailing list (in Japanese)

・Research seminars

・Implementation of outreach events



・Open to anyone who is not concerned with social standing or position and is working on or with coral reefs. No age limit. You do not have to be a member of JCRS. Dues for our group are free.
