Information on the Habitat Environment of Japanese Cranes

June 8, 2007

As a result of having dissected 17 carcasses of Japanese crane, which the Ministry of the Environment collected last year, it was determined that the most common cause of death was a crash into electric wires and trains, and the next was traffic accidents (except trains).

In addition, on June 6, 2007, the Ministry of the Environment and the Hokkaido Government held a meeting regarding cranes, and exchanged information on the analysis (by Professor Hiroki Teraoka, Rakuno Gakuen Univ.) of the mercury concentration in each organ of Japanese cranes collected between 1988 and 2004.
