About Japan Wildlife Center
Japan Wildlife Center (JWC) was founded in February 14, 1990 by Dr. Kazumasa Sakusa (veterinarian) with the purpose of conservation of wild animals. As Dr. Kazumasa Sakusa passed away September 9, 2013, currently, his wife Mrs. Izumi Sakusa has taken after him and has become Head Director of JWC. JWC's headquarters is in Tokyo Japan, and has a branch office in Kenya (Japan Wildlife Center Africa). Other than supporting organizations worldwide, JWC takes care of injured or orphaned wild animals which live mainly in the Machida area, to release back into the wild.
