About grants for wildlife damage prevention measures ~ Wildlife damage prevention comprehensive measures grants

Due to the increase and expansion of wild birds and beasts that invade human settlements and damage crops, the amount of damage to crops is about 20 billion yen every year. According to the latest damage figures (FY2016) released by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries, the amount of damage was about 17.2 billion yen, which is about 500 million yen less than the previous year, but there is still a lot of damage.
In addition, deer, wild boars, and monkeys account for about 70% of the damage.

Damage control measures have been taken across the country, but the factors that continue to cause damage are the expansion of wild bird and animal habitats, the decrease in hunting pressure, and the declining population and aging of the population. An increase in abandoned land has been pointed out.
