Request Book Donations

UMI has recently procured 50 hardback copies of a children’s book entitled (Treasures of the Deep/深海の宝物). This illustrated book follows an adventure to explore hydrothermal vents and discusses the prospect of mining them for resources. As such mining is being carried out right here in Okinawa, we would like to donate them to various schools/libraries/museums around the prefecture to raise awareness in the younger generations.

If you are associated with an institution in Okinawa where such a donation would be appropriate, you can request a free copy by sharing your details in this form.
