|●The problem with invasive alien species is that living organisms that did not originally exist in Japan can live
and harm the environment and people.
●Recently, Fire ants originating from the continent of South America have been brought to Japan in imported containers.
●Fire ants are poisonous, dangerous ants that can paralyze nerves when stabbed by people, and in the worst cases can lead to death.
●Fire ants has not yet settled in Japan, so we need to take measures now.
●Also, Black bass and Bluegill supplement freshwater fish fry, destroying the ecosystem of ponds and rivers.
●Raccoons that have been raised as pets have become wild, and damage to the crops has also occurred.
●Not only animals, but also some plants such as Black-tailed millet can destroy the Japanese ecosystem.
●We looked at these invasive alien species and decided what we could do.
●In this site, we investigated "Effects on the environment", "Effects on agriculture and fisheries", and "Effects on people".
●Finally, I thought about what we could do.
★We hope everyone can learn about this issue and protect the creatures in Japan.
