Abstract:In this study, the setts built by badgers (Meles meles) were investigated in Shanghai suburbs from April 2014 to March 2016. The results showed that the reintroduced badgers were able to find appropriate habitats and adapt natural environment of Shanghai suburbs with large-scale urbanization. Based on the analysis of habitat characteristics, the reintroduced badgers preferred the habitats with underground space and high-terrain bamboo forests that were close to water sources and far away from highways. Moreover, the reintroduced badgers foraged food in the habitats with high-dense trees, fine herbage coverage and long distance from highways. The result of food resource survey indicated that badgers were mainly fed on earthworms and insects in winter. Their food resources were from fruit forests, deciduous broad-leaf forests, coniferous forests, bamboo forests and evergreen broad-leaf forests. Overall, these findings suggested that the establishment of wild colony of badgers in Shanghai suburbs requires 5 elements including underground space, high-terrain bamboo forests, sufficient water and minimum human disturbance, as well as food supplies from mature fruit forests, broad-leaved forests and coniferous forests.
