一般講演（口頭発表） N01-04 （Oral presentation）
Common raccoon (Procyon lotor) is an invasive, non-native mammal that causes significant damages to agriculture, property and native biodiversity throughout Japan. Previous management efforts revealed intensive control campaigns could control raccoons, but the only limited number of regions manage to control raccoon. Since local governments are mainly in charge of raccoon management, we conducted the nationwide survey using questionnaire from the officers in local governments to improve the management of raccoons. Furthermore, we conducted interview survey for some advanced local governments that resolved challenges many regions faced. The survey revealed current management programs were not functioning well because most local governments did not implement appropriate monitoring. Some regions which implement proper monitoring manage to control raccoon, but each region has different methods, different scales of a budget, and various divisions of roles. From these surveys, we discuss critical points of raccoon management.
