Restoration of Maruyama River (Toyooka City, Hyogo Prefecture)

In Maruyama River Basin, the natural habitat was changed by agricultural land improvement, forest development and housing land development. In particular, ciconia boyciana have vanished in this area since 1971.
Today, ciconia boyciana (whose wild species are now extinct in Japan) is bred artificially in the prefectural “Ciconia boyciana Home Park” located in Toyooka City for release into the wild. As part of the environmental improvement measures to allow ciconia boyciana and various living organisms as a food source for ciconia boyciana, a river and waterfront environmental regeneration project is also being conducted.
