At last the long-awaited good news on Farm Sanctuary has come out.
An official blog for the Field of Hope went live on July 22, 2011.
So I took a detailed tour, but as of this moment, it still needs lots of work. No information on the field itself such as the size or what animals or how many of them are taken care of can be found. There are 4 individual names as project managers, let’s hope more details will be updated soon.
AND, apparently, Ichigo the lone cattle lives here too!
The top page says as the following:
On March 11, 2011 at 14:46, we were struck by the Great East Japan Earthquake and it has been 3 months since the nuclear 20km no-go zone has become a controlled-area.
Domestic animals such as dogs, cats and rabbits as well as farm animals such as cows, horses, pigs and chickens were also affected by the earthquake.
Those animals that were left on their own inside the Fukushima 20km no-go zone are still doing their best to stay alive amidst the unprecedented disaster.
Animal lives and human lives are the same, they are just like the members of our family.
After a half year, there will be no grass available (winter) and those cows and pigs that are doing well right now will eventually die from starvation or being culled.
Our project is to save as many lives as possible to support livestock farmers and those whose lives were affected by the disaster.
Besides to the carrying out activities to challenge ways in saving lives of the animals, we will deliver everyone through this ‘Field of Hope – Fukushima’ official blog, news on what’s happening at our pasture as well as inside the 20km no-go zone.
To connect our hope and individuals’ warm hearts, to value our feelings to help each other by holding hands together, and to move forward step by step, we live for tomorrow and the Field of Hope goes towards the future.
