Kanazawa Zoo, covering an area of 12.8 hectares, is located within the 58.5 hectares of Kanazawa Natural Park, which is situated next to the Greenery Preservation Area and the Civic Forest on the outskirts of Kita-kamakura, Kanagawa prefecture. The zoo offers a zoological-geographical display divided into the four continents of America, Eurasia, Oceania, and Africa. So I visited Kanazawa Zoo to see biological impacts of Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant accident. I saw many people visiting there and I could not find any impact of the accident. People in Kanagawa prefecture have no worry about the accident, because it is far away from the site and there is no contamination by the accidents.
