The revised Alien Species Act was voted at the House of Councilors plenary session on the 11th, and was unanimously passed and passed.



The revised law has provisions that allow alien species that may have an impact on the ecosystem to be regulated in a different way than before.



Based on this regulation, the country will stipulate a government ordinance, and while it is kept as a pet, it has strong fertility and robs the place where other creatures live in the open air. Is newly subject to regulation.



And while we allow capture and breeding, we prohibit selling, breeding for sale, importing, and releasing naturally.



In addition, the red-eared slider has a long lifespan of about 40 years, and due to the prohibition of release to nature, the owner's response becomes an issue. The policy is to publicize the idea that disposal is also necessary.



In addition, the revised law will allow fire ants, which are highly poisonous and may be established in Japan, to be entered even after customs clearance if there is a risk that alien species that require urgent action are attached to imported products. It also includes measures that can be inspected and ordered to be disposed of.
