In our path to becoming a Global Geopark, it is necessary for conservation measures to be undertaken at various places throughout the Geopark. In an area as large as Hakusan City, containing numerous natural resources, it is difficult to undertake daily monitoring. For this reason the Japan Post Office, whose workers are constantly working in and around the Geopark, has signed a formal cooperation agreement (signed September 21, 2012) to share information on the conservation status of natural resources. This is the first agreement of its kind in Japan, between a public and private business, and acts as a Geopark conservation system.
