Water Creature Observation Tour in the Sana River(Japan)

Checking water quality of the Sana River with measures

Collecting creatures in the river

Counting captured creatures and their species

The Association of Cleanup the Sana River, whose secretariat is run by the Mie Plant of Sharp Corporation, holds a water creature observation tour in the Sana River every year. The event invites local children to enjoy the local river and use such an experience for the homework of their summer vacations. On August 3, 2013, 26 children and their parents joined the tour, in cooperation with the Mie River and National Highway Office of Land, Infrastructure and Transportation Ministry.

In the tour, participants checked the water quality using simple devices, and counted the number of fish and water insects and their species according to the explanation of the instructor. Those children seemed to have been surprised to find a lot of creatures in the local river. Those captured creatures were put back into the river by them after the tour.
