​Insect Heroes

Miyama Mask (blue) and Kuwagata Ninja (red) are insect characters that specialize in stag beetles and impress even insect experts. They travel around the country in a camping car and conduct insect events that teach children about environmental conservation from an insect's perspective. They conduct ecological surveys not only in Japan, but also in Java and Sulawesi Islands in Indonesia and Taiwan. In 2014, they launched the forest restoration project "Yoro no Mori" with Mokusuke Yorou and others. They have filmed live videos of all domestic species of stag beetles (46 species), which no one has ever accomplished, and distributed them on YouTube.
