■Welcome to Manko

Manko, a Ramsar site, is the place where you can discover diverse ecosystems just near the heart of populouse Naha city. Manko is an important stopover and wintering site for shorebirds, and a home to thousands of benthos and fish. Black-faced Spoonbill, an endangered species, visits Manko in winter.

The wetland itself is small but has various types of habitat. Most part of the wetland is mudflat (47ha), which is appeared at low tide. Mangrove forest distributes along the southern shore, and small patches of reeds are also found.
