The Wild Bird and Greenery Trust for Environmental Conservation

The Trust Bank created the Wild Bird and Greenery Trust fund as a financial vehicle to support environmental conservation activities. Income from this trust is donated to the Wild Bird Society of Japan. When payments are made to the Wild Bird Society of Japan, the Trust Bank provides an additional, matching contribution from its own funds (a minimum of 500,000 yen and maximum of 2,500,000 yen, semi-annually), further meeting our customers' desire to protect the environment.

Bird Sanctuary Created for Red-crowned Crane Habitat

In March 2008, the Trust Bank contributed funds to the Wild Bird Society of Japan to acquire land and permanently protect from development the nesting grounds of the red-crowned crane (also known as the Japanese crane) in Japan. The society purchased a 34.8-hectare parcel of wetlands in Nemuro City, Hokkaido, and established the Wild Bird Society of Japan–The Trust Bank Rakuyo Bird Sanctuary.
