Tidal Flat Survey at Locals' Participation

For surveys of tidal flats, it is essential to carry on a long-term and frequent surveys to capture the regular changes and diversity of these habitats. However, the wide diversity of tidal flats has prevented many non-specialists from participating in the survey. This project by WI-Japan proposes to establish a survey method through citizen-based participation, and has involved preparation of an illustrated survey guidebook on tidal flat benthos, and hosting of public workshops and organisation of both orientation and as trial surveys. It is our third year, where we conduct three workshops in eastern Japan.


Project Description:

There are three sites chosen for workshop and trial surveys:

-Matsukawaura

-Obitsugawa-Higata

-Fujimae-Higata
