Jeju island received the title of National Geological Park from the Ministry of Environment on February 20th at the Lexington Hotel in Seoul. Ulleung-do and Dok-do (islands) were also certified.

Jeju island became Korea's first certified geopark when it was awarded the designation by the UNESCO World Geopark Steering Committee in 2010. The national government amended the Natural Parks Law and introduced the National Geological Park system after Jeju Island received national geopark certification.

The Jeju Island national geopark is 1.8 million hectares and includes Mt. Halla National Park as well as the Yongmeori coast. Coincidently, the 3rd Asia-Pacific Geopark General Assembly will be held in Jeju this September. 300 participants from 20 countries, including European Geopark Network members, are set to attend.
