australian native marsupials

澳洲的土生有袋動物最近懷疑被野貓殺害至數量急劇下降。除了生態被破壞等人為因素,專家發現受影響的大多為野貓愛捕食的物種,如袋狸及袋鼬鼠。野貓是於1700年代由歐洲人帶到澳洲,但為何近年才出現如此具破壞性的捕食行為,還有待研究。

australian native marsupials are in dramatic decline in the past years and it might be caused by the feral cats. besides habitat lost and deforestation, most of the declining marsupials like bandicoot and quolls are all feral cats’ preferred preys. feral cats were introduced to australia by the europeans in the late 1700s; it is still unexplained why the cats has been there for so long but the declines were more recent.
