This pamphlet introduces our efforts for the preservation of biodiversity during the construction and operation of the Kaminoseki Nuclear Power Station.
Some of the details of these efforts are described below.
In order to reduce the impact on the natural habitats of terrestrial life, the area of altered land and the range of tree trimming and cutting will be kept to the required minimum, as we make every effort to preserve the existing plant life. In addition, we will introduce plant life that matches the feeding patterns of local birds.
Further, before starting tree trimming and cutting work in the region to be altered, we will check for the presence of precious fauna and flora species. If any are discovered, they will be moved or transplanted to similar environments outside of the region to be altered.
Shellfish (family cornirostridae)
(This species has high academic value for research in the process of shellfish evolution.)
This species is an extremely small shellfish of only a few millimeters that is said to show the process of evolution in shellfish. It makes its home on the undersides of rocks in tide pools.
* This species has been discovered throughout a wide area from Iyonada to Suounada through surveys performed by Chugoku Electric Power.
