Evaluation of the Monkey-Persimmon Environmental Education Program for Reducing Human-Wildlife Conflicts in Nagano, Japan
Sakurai, Ryo; Jacobson, Susan K.
Applied Environmental Education and Communication, v10 n1 p43-51 2011
Co-existing with wildlife and maintaining rural livelihoods are common challenges in remote villages in Japan. The authors assess the effects of the Monkey-Persimmon Environmental Education Program developed to reduce wildlife conflicts and to revitalize a community in Nagano Prefecture. Development of a logic model helped guide interviews with staff and villagers about program outcomes. Household interviews revealed that 83% of respondents knew about the program and, of these, 90% had positive attitudes toward activities. Recommendations to monitor and improve program effects are based on the environmental, economic, and social components of education for sustainable development. (Contains 3 tables.)
