The Ministry of the Environment is pleased to announce that two crested ibis chicks have successfully left their nest which was built within a cage atop a tree in the Toki Reintroduction Center, Sado City, Niigata Prefecture. The cage was built to acclimatize the nestlings to the wild.

A total of 17 crested ibises are currently undergoing training in preparation for their trial release into the wild, as planned for autumn this year.
