Purpose: The number of animal species requiring active conservation actions is increasing in many parts of the world. In order to coexist with a variety of species and sustain them into the future, there are a lot of issues to be solved.

In this session, we will have some presentations on the specific examples of in-situ and ex-situ conservation efforts influenced by the relationship among humans, wild animals and their habitats. Through a discussion, we would like to gain an understanding of the actual situation, share the awareness of the problems, and try to find clues to resolving the issues.


<Chairperson’s Message>

The number of wildlife species is decreasing due to various causes such as habitat loss, excess consumption, invasion by alien species and global warming. And many of these causes are induced by human activities. In the circumstances the idea of One Plan Approach is recommended. One Plan Approach is the integrated and multifaceted conservation strategy for all populations of endangered species including both inside and outside their natural range, with all responsible parties.

Conservation efforts even for a single endangered species can cause multiple complex problems to solve. Responsible parties have been making their own individual efforts from their respective positions, for example setting up the land-use regulations in habitats, introducing the consumption controls, and tackling with the artificial population growth. But patchwork of individualized approaches could not fix, therefore a One Plan Ap
proach was developed.

To proceed with the conservation efforts for endangered species, all responsible parties such as researchers in the field of target species and their habitat environments, government officials, NPO staff, experts of captive managements, local residents and workers, should clarify their position and condition of involvement, and their interests. On that basis, they need to have a common understanding of issues and objectives, and need to share information. It is not easy to advance the comprehensive approaches, therefore it is required to invest resources such as time, energy and money under appropriate leadership.

Since human beings are part of the natural ecological system, rapid decrease of biological diversity can make a large impact on human society. It can take a lot to recover the vanishing species, but it is important to examine and share the idea of what is possible and what is required.

3)“Education / Human-animal Relations”
Date: Monday, July 20 10:00~13:00

Session Management: Executive Committee
Chair: Masahiro AMAGASE (Nara Women’s University, Associate professor of psychology)天ケ瀬正博先生

Purpose: It is variously significant that children study animals.  It aims at protecting themselves, at being aware of killing other animals for them to live, at forming better partnership with animals, at being responsible for animal welfare, at preserving the ecosystem, at realizing inclusive society, and etc.  But it is not easy that children properly learn about animals.  In this session, we will present various education programs and discuss their possibilities together.



<Chairperson’s Message>

In the present human activities have been global, our coexistence among different cultures and harmony with nature are urgently needed.  Armed struggles and destruction of the natural environment endanger the sustainability of human society.  Only the symbiosis actualizes resiliency from destruction and sustainability toward the future. 

For our coexistence and harmony, we must study the way other parties live and learn to behave responsibly one another.  The mere contact without such learning would result in discrimination, prejudice, and intolerance. Learners must properly be educated to have a true appreciation of others.

The education must be to lead learners to behave responsibly in the real world, not to cram for paper tests.  Modern school education, however, confines learners (i.e., children) in their classroom, and separates their learning from their behaving.  Children need to learn through activities in the reality, being led by the proper education.
