Palestine mountain gazelle now endangered

blog_illl241-23

過去15年山瞪羚的數量急劇下降,本來棲息於土耳其的羚群只餘下約200隻,所以於以色列地區的2000隻已是最大的羚群。牠們主要被城市發展、交通意外等因素所威脅。最近牠們的瀕危級數由升到,有專家希望這能阻止發展商在牠們的棲息地區動土。

the population of the palestine mountain gazelle dropped dramatically in the past 15 years. there are only 200 of them left in Turkey, so the remaining 2000 in Israeli became the last important population. they are mainly threatened by the habitat lost and collisions with road traffic. their conservation status has recently changed from vulnerable to endangered. specialists hope this could stop the building plans and other unnecessary construction in these critical areas.
