🐾Let's Go Animal Tracking! Search for Wild Animal Footprints at Akiu Otaki Falls!
During the season when snow accumulates in mountainous areas, you can observe the "field signs" of wild mammals, such as footprints, feces, and food trails on the snow. Many wild mammals are nocturnal and rarely seen, but if you track down the field signs you can imagine the elusive wildlife!

2. Field signs search, observation and commentary on site
3. Reflection on species and their behavior indoors
Nocturnal wild mammals are rarely seen in everyday life, and it is very difficult to know what they are doing. However, in the winter months, especially on the morning after a night of snow fall, traces of wild mammal activity, such as footprints and traces of food, are left on the snow, indicating that there are wild animals out during the night.
The event offers some insight into wildlife behavior that is difficult to observe directly by looking for field signs. Let's step into the wildlife world together!
We hope you will be able to understand nature on a deeper level, such as the lifestyle and behavior an unfamiliar creature that you cannot usually see.
