This petition had 2,031 supporters

This petition is created to honor 57 year old rice farmer, Naoto Matsumura with the Nobel price for his efforts to save the animals in Tomioka, Japan, inside the "No-Go" zone. Mr. Matsumura is the last man to remain in the area and stays to feed and care for the animals. 57 year old Naoto Matsumura is a fifth generation farmer and the "Guardian of Fukushima's Animals". While others have been forced bout of Fukushima's 20km exclusion zone due to radiation dangers from the TEPCO Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, Naoto-San has chosen to ignore Japanese law and remain behind to care for the animals. Tomioka, once home to 16,000 people, is the only home Mr. Matsumura's has ever known. He's seen it change from lush farmland to a nuclear wasteland and ghost town. He is well aware of the dangers to his own health but, he won't leave the animals behind. Aki, his dog is his constant companion, along with the cats and other abandonned animals since september 2011. As Matsumura began to feed his own animals, the neighborhood's desperate cats and dogs started showing up. He started to feed them too and decided he couldn't leave them behind to die. Weeks turned into months and now nearly 5 years Naoto Matsumura is the archetype of the last man surviving a major ecological desaster threatening the ecosystem of Earth.
