Why is Save the Elephants (STE) encouraging tourists to shoot male African elephants? Is it because bulls roam away from the herd and are easier to single out?

Partly. But this group, headed by Dr. Iain Douglas-Hamilton, wants hunters to shoot rtranquilizers. It’s part of their “green hunting” plan. Casts could be made of the bull’s tusks, and tourists would receive yearly reports on the bull.STE hopes this plan might slow the slaughter of elephants for their ivory tusks.

Althougnt the World Wide Fund for Nature points to the loss of habitat as the biggest challenge facing the African elephants, STEfeels that the ivory trade presents the biggest danger. Ivory tusks can reach 10 feet in length, growing as much as seven inches a year. They continue to grow throughout an elephant’s life. Poaches slaughter elephants for their tusks and their hides.

Since 1979, the population of elephants fell 1,300,000 to somewhere between 380,000 and 580,000. To emphasize the connection between the ivory trade and the fall in elephant numbers, Douglas-Hamilton points out that ivory hunters killed three-fourths of the elephants in Tsavo National Park during that period. The Tsavo herd was reduced from 45,000 to 6,000 members.

    ✱ 這篇英文有幾個錯誤哦!

    第二段 wants hunters to shoot 'rtranquilizers'. 應是 tranquilizers.

    第三段 ’Althougnt‘ the World Wide Fund 應是 Althought.

    'Poaches' slaughter elephants for their tusks..應是 Poachers 偷獵者.

    ✱ 以下為中譯:

    為什麼拯救大象組織(STE) 鼓勵遊客射獵雄性非洲象?是因為雄象常漫遊出象群, 容易單獨出現嗎?

    這只是部分表象. 而這組由伊恩·道格拉斯-哈密爾頓博士領導的團體, 希望獵人發射鎮定劑. 這是他們的“綠色狩獵”計劃的一部分. 象牙模型可以由雄象的象牙作成,而遊客將收到有關那雄象的年度報告. STE 希望這個計劃可以減緩為了獲取象牙的大象屠殺.

    雖然世界自然基金會指出,非洲的大象面臨的最大挑戰是棲息地的喪失,STE 認為,是象牙貿易造成了最大的危險. 象牙可以長達10英尺長, 每年增長高達7英寸. 在大象的整個生命週期中它們繼續的增長. 偷獵者屠殺大象以獲取它們的象牙和它們的厚皮.

    自1979年以來, 大象的數量減少了130萬隻,到38萬隻和58隻之間. 為了要強調象牙貿易和大象數量下降之間的關聯, 道格拉斯.哈密爾頓指出, 在此期間象牙獵人殺死了四分之三的察沃國家公園的大象. 察沃象群被從4萬5千隻減少到6千隻.
