Hokkaido montane conifer forests

WWF Abstract

The nation of Japan is spread out across a series of islands in the Pacific Ocean. If you were to travel to the northern parts of this archipelago, you'd reach the island of Hokkaido. This island is so far north, in fact, that some areas have an almost arctic climate. Here you'll find a number of cold weather mammals inhabiting the extensive conifer forests, including the Yezo brown bear and the weasel-like sable.
