Wild Japan

Japan has a surprisingly vast range of landscapes, from the far north, where sea eagles walk on frozen waters, to subtropical southern islands, with coral reefs and mangroves, and the central islands, with forested mountains, home to bears and monkeys. Each area has its challenges, and everything that lives here has its own strategies for survival in these unpredictable environments. Throughout this rich and varied landscape, there remains a powerful association between people and wildlife, despite the fact that this is one of the most modern, crowded, urbanised nations on Earth.
