IKI-MINAMI Biotope (2002-)


A plan to construct a biotope in the centre of Iki-minami primary school, which is located at Nishi-ku, Fukuoka City, kicked off in 2002. With young stars and teachers at the school, we have considered how to utilise the biotope and conduct environmental educations from the beginning.

That children play in nature is very important to learn ecological system and absorb knowledge of living. Due to urbanization, however, it is now difficult for them to experience the diversity and richness of nature.

Therefore, we designed the biotope to have multifunctional characteristics as a children’s play space in order to learn the ecological systems for themselves.

We are going to publish papers on the past decade and keep on conducting workshops to obtain more data.
