河狸将成为苏格兰保护动物
Beavers to become protected species in Scotland

[2019年3月19日] 来源:BBC ?#25945;?#33521;语   字号 [] [] []  

苏格兰环境大臣罗塞?#26448;取た材?#27721;姆表示,从今年五月起,河狸将成为苏格兰地区的一个受保护物种。这项让人期待已久并保受争议的举措激起了很多农民?#22982;?#23545;,并引发了一场应如何管控河狸数量的争议。


调整语速:

They were extinct for 400 years, but beavers were illegally released in Tayside in the first part of this century.

河狸本已在苏格兰消失了四百年,但在本?#20848;?#19978;半叶,河狸在泰赛德市?#29615;?#27861;放生。

Their population has grown rapidly to more than 400 and many farmers have complained about their dams flooding prime agricultural land.

它们的总数量已经快速增长到了 400 多只,而且很多农民已经就河狸筑坝,淹没优质农业用地的问题进行了投诉。

But after ministers decided against a cull, they've now made moves to protect them. That will make it an offence to kill, injure or capture beavers without a licence.

但相关部门大臣决定不?#24066;?#23545;它们进行选择性宰?#20445;?#24182;已采取措施保护这个物种。这意味着无执照宰杀、伤害?#23433;?#25417;河狸将会是一种违法行为。

Farming leaders have said they need to be controlled effectively. Scottish Natural Heritage is expected to publish guidance on how that can be achieved in the coming weeks.

农民代表们说,应有效地控制河狸的数量。预计苏格兰自然遗产署将在接下来的几周内公布如何实现有效控制河狸数量的指导方针。
