The K3 seawall near the beach at Henoko has reached its planned length, and has curved to enter the K4 seawall construction.

Furthermore, work on the N3 seawall that extends from Henoko Peninsula is currently suspended, with sacks containing crushed stones laid on the cusp, perhaps because it has also reached its planned length. Crushed stones are being thrown down from both ends of the section of the K4 seawall that extends in a T-shape from the N5 seawall, and if the K4 is built to fully extend from the K3 to the N3, the sea will be surrounded. It is necessary to halt the construction before this happens.

The sea creatures have entered breeding season, and it seems like the corals will start laying eggs at the end of this month.

The sea creatures have entered breeding season, and it seems like the corals will start laying eggs at the end of this month.

It is egg-laying season for the sea turtles, and they are trying to return to their places of birth to lay their eggs, but the beach is covered by a temporary road for the construction and there are hardly any sandy areas left on the beach.

Migratory tern birds are now and then returning, but if they can’t breed and raise their offspring here, they may become extinct.

Before the relay of life for so many living creatures gets ended, this construction must be halted as soon as possible.
