作为非洲标志之一的长颈鹿在过去的三十年里数量锐减,从1985 年的15.5 万只减少到2015 年的 9.7 万只。国际自然保护联盟 IUCN 首次将长颈鹿列为“易危”物种,希望此举能够帮助长颈鹿得到更多的关注和保护。 请听Matt McGrath 的报道。

The graceful giraffe is an inescapable image of Africa, but the animal has suffered a disturbing decline over the past three decades.

Populations have plummeted in many parts due to a combination of factors, but humans are largely responsible. Increasing amounts of the giraffes’ range have been fragmented by farmers eager for land. Wars in northern Kenya and south Sudan have seen large numbers of the curious creatures killed for food. But the picture isn’t all gloom, populations in southern Africa have boomed, because of protected ranges which boost tourism revenues.

And experts believe that declaring the giraffe to be vulnerable could give the species the attention it needs to ultimately ensure its survival.
