TAke a rare OPPORTUNITY to see giant salamander in the wild and help with their survival

The elusive and mysterious Japanese giant salamander is considered a living dinosaur and is one of only three species of giant salamander in the world. The future survival of these gentle giants is under threat through habitat degradation and the impact of invasive species. Thanks to its isolation, Nichinan Town in the rural prefecture Tottori Prefecture has a relatively stable and healthy population of giant salamanders. Join the world’s leading Japanese giant salamander expert Dr. Okada in Nichinan to conduct vital research in their natural environment. This is a rare opportunity to see the salamanders up close in the wild and help contribute to their long-term survival.
