水鳥遷徙遭獵殺

anddear_news_A-58

每年有61種水鳥會經東亞─澳大利亞飛行航道遷徙,途經22個國家。研究員成功收集當中14個國家的打獵數據,發現至少有46種水鳥在遷徙途中被獵殺,並包括多種瀕危物種如勺嘴鷸及大濱鷸等。這些遷徙水鳥會於海岸地區或濕地停留補給,除獵殺外,各地沿岸發展及污染已嚴重破壞牠們的生境。

Every year, 61 species of shorebirds migrate across the East Asian-Australasian Flyway, pass by 22 countries. Researchers were able to study 14 of them, and found out at least 46 species of shorebirds were being hunted during migration, including some endangered species like spoon-billed sandpiper and great knot. These shorebirds will stop to rest at coastal and wetland areas. Besides hunting, they are also threatened by habitat loss due to coastal developments and pollution.
