poaching “guide”

steal guide

大多學者於科學論文發佈發現新物種時,會提及發現的位置作研究證據。發現新物種原本是個好消息,但有些黑商竟然藉此資訊去獵捕這些稀有物種。這令學術界關注並思考不再公開位置資訊,免得成威脅這些動物的幫兇。

when scientists discover a new species, they usually would reveal geographical data in the academic journal. however, black market traders and poachers would use these information to collect these rare species. scientists are now thinking about prohibiting the publication of location data of endangered species, in order to avoid becoming the accomplices in putting them in greater danger.
