If you wish for the sanctuary to remain undeveloped please provide financial assistance to the Gyotoku Bird Observatory to resume or reconstruct the wild bird observatory. If people are not exposed to the sanctuary I fear that they will lose interest in protecting it.
"In the end we will conserve only what we love; we will love only what we understand; and we will understand only what we are taught." (Baba Dioum, 1968.)
've never thought of such rare Bird Observatory like Gyotoku ever be closed by the command of Chiba prefectural goverment. Lots of memories of healing voices of birds and creatures in shallow wetland, thick plants and sick or injured birds taken cared by Observatory's vets. Governor Mr. Kensaku Morita, please let the observatory and it's works continue without sceasing, as it's rich life chain never slumbers. You'll contribute not only to local Ichikawa community, but also to entire Tokyo and Chiba coastal area, by giving another benefit of their economical water-purification system!
Long life to Gyoku Bird Observatory which benefits all residents' in Japan (and all neighboring nations in pacific ocean) educationally, mentaly, environmentaly and even financially. For it's water-purification system (by life chain in wetland) functions far more economically than water-filtering reservoir!)
