青岛希尼尔翻译公司( www.)2016年5月2日了解到:Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta has set fire to a huge stockpile of ivory in an effort to show his country’s commitment to saving Africa’s elephants.

肯尼亚总统 乌呼鲁·肯雅塔放火销毁巨大象牙库存,以展示他的国家拯救非洲大象的承诺。

More than 100 tonnes of ivory was stacked up in pyres in Nairobi National Park where it is expected to burn for several days.

超过100顿的象牙堆 积在内罗毕国家公园,预计要烧好几天。

The ivory represents nearly the entire stock confiscated by Kenya, amounting to the tusks of about 6,700 elephants.

这是肯尼亚 没收的几乎全部的象牙,大约是6700头大象的数 量。

Some disagree with Kenya’s approach, saying it can encourage poaching.

有些人不同 意肯尼亚的做法,称这将会鼓励偷猎。

Before igniting the first pyre, Mr Kenyatta said: "The height of the pile of ivory before us marks the strength of our resolve.

在点燃第一 堆象牙之前,肯雅塔先生说:“这堆摆在我们面前的象牙的高度,标志着我们的决心的力量。”

"No-one, and I repeat no-one, has any business in trading in ivory, for this trade means death of our elephants and death of our natural heritage."

“没有人, 我再说一遍,没有人,应该与象牙贸易有任何关系,因为这种贸易意味着大象的死亡,我们的自然遗产的死亡。”

Does burning actually destroy ivory?

烧象牙真的 能毁象牙吗?

The burning comes after African leaders meeting in Kenya urged an end to illegal trade in ivory.

非洲领导人 在会议上呼吁停止非法象牙贸易之后,烧毁的计划出台。

Experts have warned Africa’s elephants could be extinct within decades.

专家们警告 说非洲大象可能在几十年内灭绝。

But some conservationists have expressed opposition to the ivory burn in Kenya, the biggest in history.

但一些环保 主义者表示反对肯尼亚这次历史上最大的燃烧象牙的做法。

They say destroying so much of a rare commodity could increase its value and encourage more poaching rather than less.

他们说,摧 毁了这么多奇货可居的物品可能反而增加它的价值,鼓励更多的偷猎,而不是减少。

Botswana, which is home to about half of Africa’s elephants, is opposed to the burn and its president did not attend the event in Nairobi.

拥有非洲大 象总群的半数的博茨瓦纳反对烧毁,该国总统没有出席在内罗毕举行的活动。

Demand for ivory comes largely from Asia, with the main trafficking route being through the Kenyan port of Mombasa.

象牙的需求 主要来自于亚洲,大多都是通过肯尼亚蒙巴萨港的运输路线输出的。来源:BBC 官网
