Kasumigaura Bird Rescue

There is a serious animal cruelty problem in Kasumigaura. Birds are being trapped in lotus farmers’ nets and being left to die a slow and painful death. Read more about this issue and what Avi and Maurice are doing about it.

Avi and Maurice have started a group called “Kasumigaura Bird Rescue” to help save the birds. One of their proactive activities is to educate people about this problem by bringing them to the site and showing them the situation and what they are doing to fix it. They meet at the east exit of Tsuchiura Station and then go to Kasumigaura together. The next meeting will be on January 20. If you would like to help, please meet at the station at 10:30am. Call Maurice (090-1691-1590) to let him know that you will be attending and to get more information. (Also, let him know if you have a car and can shuttle a few people to the lake and back.)

Let’s make a difference together!
