原池・Hara Pond

2015.02.11 (Wed)

原池

Hara Pond is a lagoon which, like Lake Tōgō, was closed off from the sea long ago. Along with its diverse plant life, Hara Pond is inhabited by several species of dragonflies, wild birds, and fish. Its abundant marsh habitat is protected as one of Tottori Prefecture`s wildlife conservatories.

原池は潟湖で、東郷湖と同じく大昔に海が閉ざされ池となりました。原池には多様な湿性植物が育成するとともに多種類のトンボや野鳥、魚類など多くの野生動物が生息しています。豊かな湿地生態系が形成されており、鳥取県の自然環境保全地域に指定されています。
