Let's learn about the ecology of the endangered Tokyo salamander that lives in metsä - Part 2 Egg Observation Session - 1

\Let's protect the lives of rare creatures living in metsä! /

Did you know that the Tokyo salamander, which is designated as an endangered species II, lives in Metsä Village, which is surrounded by forests and lakes and is rich in nature? The Tokyo salamander is a living creature that moves back and forth between the forest and the waterside, and in fact, lives right next to our lives.

The eggs are squishy and have a very strange shape.
Let's go into Metsä's backyard, which is usually not open to the public, and investigate the spawning situation near the water, observe other creatures that live near the water in spring, and have fun learning about nature!

Through observation sessions, children can learn about living things and the land in Metsä where they live, which can help children develop respect for the natural environment and how biodiversity conservation activities can help people's lives. Masu.
