Courtesy photo of mammals at MCAS Iwakuni, Japan. Marine Corps Air Station Iwakuni has a growing wildlife population. Birds, mammals, reptiles and amphibians can be found in growing numbers throughout various locations, taking up temporary habitats on fields and near bodies of water. Inherently having wildlife on an air station isn’t a problem, but it becomes one when they interact negatively with the operations of the airfield. In this case, it’s Bird/Wildlife Aircraft Strike Hazard, or BASH.
