building highway in papuas

印尼政府正在新幾內亞興建一條2700英里的公路,開發世上僅存的原始熱帶雨林,對當地的珍稀物種如天堂鳥及樹袋鼠帶來嚴重威脅。工程會砍伐大量林木,更會造就更多採礦、化石燃料工業及農業、種植園的發展機會,加倍破壞當地獨特的生態。

the Indonesian government is building a 2700miles road on New Guinea, opening up some of the last primeval forest on earth, and will bring threats to many unique wildlife like the paradise birds and tree-kangaroos on the island. large amount of forest will be gone because of the road construction, and the road would create access for more mining, minerals or agri-business activities in the future, bringing more threats to the wildlife and cause more biodiversity loss.
