美唄湿原 Bibai-shitsugen Bibai Wetland

Jp En

Ishikari Plain in Hokkaido used to be a vast wetland, which disappeared with agricultural land development. Presently the primitive state of such land features can only be seen in Bibai City. Bibai Wetland, 440 m long in north to south direction and about 540 m long in east to west direction, is a small wetland surrounded by drainage ditches and barley and rice fields.

The wetland is the habitat of wildlife including rare species of swamp plants as well as large birds and animals such as foxes and swans. As the academic importance of the wetland is highly esteemed, Bibai Research Station of National Agricultural Research Center for Hokkaido Region has conducted research and maintenance of this wetland.
