In April of 1994, they finished the integration and was re-established as ‘Korea Green Association’. In April of 1996, they settled on the name of the organization as ‘Green Korea’. The main activities of Green Korea are to preserve Baekdudaegan Mountain which is a main ecological axis, coast marine and demilitarized zone(DMZ) and also to protect the wildlife living there.
