jellyfish lake in danger

no more jelly fish.jpg

帛琉的水母湖是一個鹹水湖,原本是大海的一部分,因地殼運動令周圍海床上升。湖裡面住著數百萬隻黃金水母而成旅遊熱點。近來水母數量急劇下降,由800萬下降到只有60萬隻。估計因氣候及海洋暖化問題、降雨量低等因素所致。

the Jellyfish Lake is a saltwater lake in Palau; it used to be part of the ocean until the crustal movement make the seabed rose and formed this lake. it is famous for the millions of golden jellyfish in the lake. however, the number of jellyfish has dropped from around 8 millions down to just 600,000. this might be due to the climate and ocean warming problem, and the lake of rain.
