I visit Ueno Zoological Gardens many times every year. Because there are various animals in the Zoo and it is fun to meet them. I have reported the Zoo at September 9, 2011 (http://phnetwork.blogspot.jp/2012/09/biological-monitoring-in-tokyo-japan.html) and this is the 2nd time to show you it. Ueno Zoological Gardens is the oldest and biggest zoo in Japan. I think some animals are more sensitive to radioactive materials of the environment than us. So I go there to see effects of Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power plant accident. Though I have never found any impact of the accident, I think it is important to see creatures of Tokyo because they teach us the environmental health.
