Cheetahs make a comeback in India after 70 years

絕跡70 獵豹重返印度

 

【摘要2022.9.27.自由陳成良】

Eight big cats from Namibia made the long trek Saturday in a chartered cargo flight to the northern Indian city of Gwalior, part of an ambitious and hotly contested plan to reintroduce cheetahs to the South Asian country.

週六,來自納米比亞的8隻大型貓科動物乘坐包機長途跋涉,飛往印度北部城市瓜里爾,這是將獵豹重新引進這個南亞國家的雄心勃勃且備受爭議的計畫之一環。

Then they were moved to their new home: a sprawling national park in the heart of India where scientists hope the world’s fastest land animal will roam again.

隨後牠們被移入新家:位於印度中心一座寬廣的國家公園,科學家希望這種世界上跑最快的陸地動物能再次漫遊此間。

Cheetahs were once widespread in India and became extinct in 1952 from hunting and loss of habitat. They remain the first and only predator to die out since India’s independence in 1947. India hopes importing African cheetahs will aid efforts to conserve the country’s threatened and largely neglected grasslands.

獵豹曾經在印度廣泛分佈,但在1952年因狩獵和棲息地喪失而滅絕。自1947年印度獨立以來,牠們仍然是第一種也是唯一一種滅絕的掠食動物。印度希望輸入非洲獵豹,將有助於保護該國受到威脅且在很大程度上被忽視的草原。
