Unfortunately, our Fukushima Project is not funded by Japanese government. We manage this project with a small amount of money. At this point, we have some funds from our university and a private foundation. However, a lack of sufficient funding hampers some of our important experiments to perform such as frequent field sampling studies and complete genomic analysis.

 If you agree about our research directions, please consider donations now. Our laboratory would like to ask for donations to further examine the biological impacts of the Fukushima nuclear accident on the pale grass blue butterfly. If you can help us, we will provide the public with invaluable scientific information that will not be known from any other places.
