The Largest Biotope Site in Japan (Japanes)

Reclaimed land for human's agricultural production perennially (since 1970) is now going back to the marshy area for fishes and birds. Next month I'll go on a field trip there: the broadest biotope site in Japan with which local government of Shiga prefecture -- its administrative district encircles Lake Biwa, the largest lake in Japan -- has, ongoing since 2001, attempted to validate the importance of interference zone between rich soil and clean freshwater, i.e., eco-ethicaly, the ecological embrace between the exploitation for self‐preservation and the altruistic behavior for all species.
