Oriental Stork Ciconia boyciana

The Oriental Stork is a very large unmistakeable bird whose numbers have been decimated by habitat loss, pollution, over-fishing and agricultural practices. It has a very restricted range and a small population, hence its endangered status. In Japan an effort is underway to increase the wild population, similar to the effort to reintroduce the Crested Ibis.
