WHY HIM? CW Ni­col was born in Wales but has called Ja­pan home for more than 40 years. In the mid 1980s, he bought 47,000 square kilo­me­tres of Nagano pre­fec­ture and es­tab­lished the Afan Wood­land Trust, turn­ing the area into a thriv­ing re­serve that’s home to many threat­ened species, in­clud­ing black bears. THAT’S NOT ALL He’s work­ing to per­suade the Ja­panese gov­ern­ment to pro­tect more of the coun­try’s nat­u­ral won­ders and has es­tab­lished a sis­ter Afan re­serve in his na­tive Wales.
