island fox

 

 

居住於加利福尼亞州海峽群島有六個亞種的島嶼灰狐,因為人類發展及被金鵰捕食等因素導致牠們於2004年被列為瀕危,成為世上其中最瀕危的犬科動物。經過多年的努力,保育工作者把金鵰遷移、控制了島上的山羊及野豬數目,他們成功助其中兩種的島嶼灰狐脫離瀕危名單!

there are six subspecies of island foxes living on Channel Islands of California. due to human activities and predation by the golden eagle, these these island were listed as some of the most endangered in 2004. but after conservationists relocated the golden eagles and controlling the overpopulated goats and pigs, two of the subspecies of island foxes are now out of the endangered list!
