Restoration of Sarobetsu Marsh (Toyotomi town, Hokkaido)

In Sarobetsu Plain registered under the Ramsar Convention in 2005, the land becomes dry progressively due to the agricultural land improvement for developing dairy and arid plants such as sasa veitchii are increasing in number. The lowering water level of the marsh caused by a drainage project for bogs along with the agricultural land development is another problem.
Under the circumstances, the Sarobetsu natural regeneration project toward “coexistence of marsh and agriculture” is being conducted to recover the drying marsh and conserve the marsh by providing buffer zones in the agricultural land.
