The Japanese National Biodiversity Strategy 2010 calls for the creation of ecological networks as a biodiversity conservation policy. This study proposed a plan of ecological networks to conserve two threatened local populations of Asiatic black bear (Ursus thibetanus japonicus) in Fuji and Tanzawa region in Japan with the support of GIS technologies. Using the predicted habitat patches of bears, current protected areas, road, vegetation cover types, land use, and altitude, GIS-based modeling was applied. The planned ecological networks consisted of 1582 km2 of core areas, 182 km2 of ecological corridors, and 618 km2 of buffer zones. If the plan will be implemented, 4 % of forest area will be expanded and total cost is 55 trillion yen. GIS-based modeling was proved to be effective for generating spatially explicit plan.
