Preserving Precious Nature in a Big City
The Fujimae Tidal Flat, located in the innermost part of Nagoya Port at the mouth of the Shonai, Shinkawa, and Nikko Rivers, stands as one of Japan's leading destinations for approximately 40 species of sandpipers and plovers. At one point, it faced the threat of being turned into a landfill site, however, this plan was ultimately canceled. In 2002, the site was registered as a wetland under the Ramsar Convention, earning recognition as an internationally important tidal flat.
