The journal in Folia Primatologica has published the development of Animal-pathway, which has been researched and developed by the Animal-pathway Research Group. The details of the Dormouse Bridge and the Dormouse Tunnel, the starting point of the Animal-pathway development, are also introduced. We are grateful for the efforts of Chairman Minato and Dr. Pat Morris of the United Kingdom.
We would also like to thank our many members and supporters.
Title: Mitigating the effects of road construction on arboreal Japanese mammals: benefits for both wildlife and people
Abstract: “Fragmentation of forest habitat has negative effects on arboreal mammals, compromising their natural dispersal and foraging movements. This paper describes an evolving series of mitigation measures aimed at creating cost-effective continuity pathways for arboreal mammals in Japan. The projects have focused on the endemic Japanese dormouse (Glirulus japonicus) a scarce, but popular and iconic species which provides an effective vehicle for environmental education and public engagement.”
