chinese sturgeons

blog_illl177-05

中華鱘於1.4億年前已存在於地球上,但牠們很快就會變作歷史。牠們雖是中國國家一級保護動物之一,但牠們的棲息地長江並沒有被好好保護。除了各種污染、過度繁忙的船隻、加建水覇令水温上升等因素導致中華鱘不再繁殖。最新的普查是有紀錄以來第一次發現牠們沒有繁殖活動。

chinese sturgeons have existed on earth for over 140 million years, but they might become history soon. even though they are listed as a chinese “national treasure”, their home, Yangtze river, is not being protected. pollution, boat traffic, overfishing and dams building are putting this endangered species in great danger; they no longer reproduce. in 2013, for the first time since researchers began keeping records, there was no natural reproduction of wild chinese sturgeon in the area.
