Oostvaardersplassen

human trying to rewilding

荷蘭把一片荒地設為野化保留區,把大批草食性動物如牛、馬、紅鹿等放到區內,並相信會自然野化。但在沒有捕獵者的情況下,數年間草食性動物不斷繁殖,草地已被吃至光禿亦無時間再生,區內變得荒涼,被困動物飢餓至死。

the Oostvaardersplassen is a nature reserve in netherlands; large herbivores were brought to the reserve to rewild the area. without predators, the population of the herbivores increased in a few years and land is overgrazed. many animals starved to death and there are animals carcasses and dead trees around the reserve.
