African Lion Cub

An African lion cub rests in the tall grasses of Botswana’s Okavango Delta. Once ranging across the African continent and into Syria, Israel, Iraq, Pakistan, Iran, and even northwest India, lions have declined to as few as 20,000 animals from about 450,000 just 50 years ago.

一只非洲狮幼崽在博茨瓦那的奥卡万戈三角洲茂密的草丛中休息。曾经在整个非洲大陆、叙利亚、伊拉克、巴基斯坦、伊朗甚至印度的西北部都可以发现非洲狮的踪影,现在非洲狮已从50年前的45万头降低到现在的2万头。

Asiatic Leopard Cub亚洲花豹幼崽

Photograph by Steve Winter SW拍摄

An Asiatic leopard cub in the Hukawng Valley in Myanmar (Burma) became an orphan after hunters killed its mother to sell her body parts for use in traditional medicine. In 2010, the entire valley—about the size of Vermont—was designated by the government of Myanmar as a tiger sanctuary, a major conservation step that protects big cats and other rare species throughout the territory.

缅甸胡康一只亚洲花豹幼崽在它的母亲被猎人猎杀后成了孤儿,这次母花豹身体的部分将被猎人作为传统医药出售。在2010年,缅甸政府把整个峡谷(有佛蒙特州那么大)化为老虎栖息自然保护区,为保护这土地上的老虎和其它一此类似的物种迈出了坚实的一步。

Lion cubs play in the Okavango Delta in Botswana. Loss of habitat, prey decline, pesticides, and even canine distemper and tuberculosis have caused lion numbers to quickly decline across Africa.

 非洲狮幼崽在博茨瓦那的奥卡万戈三角洲。即将推动的栖息地,猎物的减少、杀虫剂、甚至犬瘟热和肺结核让狮子数量在非洲大陆上急剧下降。

King Cheetah Cub帝王猎豹幼崽

Photograph by Chris Johns CJ拍摄

Still just a prince, a rare king cheetah is the result of a recessive gene. Except for darker, elongated spots, king cheetahs are genetically identical to other cheetahs. The genetic homogeneity of cheetah populations may make them more vulnerable to disease.

仍然是一个王者,珍稀的帝王猎豹是隐性基因的结果。除了更黑,斑点更长之外,帝王猎豹和其它猎豹的基因是相同的。猎豹数量上基因上相同性让它们更容易受疾病攻击。

Most wild cheetahs are found in eastern and southwestern Africa. It is estimated that only 7,500 of these big cats remain, and those are under pressure as the wide-open grasslands they favor are disappearing at the hands of human settlers.

大部分野生豹在非洲的东部和西南部生活。据估计现在只有7500只野豹,它们生活在压力之下,因为它们喜爱的完全开放的草原正在消失在人类拓荒者的手里。

Yawning Lion Cub 非洲狮幼崽在打哈欠

Photograph by Beverly Joubert  JB拍摄

A small lion cub yawns while resting with its pride in Savuti, Botswana. Cubs join prides when they can move well enough to keep up—after about three months. Lions are unique among big cats in forming groups.

 博茨瓦那的萨谬提,一只非洲狮幼崽正和它的狮群在一起休息,它正打着哈欠。非洲狮幼崽可以自已行走了就加入狮群---大概它们出生三个月以后。在大型猫科动物里,狮子很特别,他们是群居动物。

A young lion cub climbs on a fallen tree limb in Botswana. Scientists connect the drastic decreases in lion numbers in many cases to burgeoning human populations.

在博茨瓦那,一只小非洲狮幼崽爬上了一颗枯树杆。科学家认为非洲狮数量的急剧减少很大程度是是因为人类数量的急剧增长。

A leopard cub rests near its mother in the Okavango Delta. Though the leopard is the most widespread of all big cats, many of their populations are endangered, especially those outside Africa.

在奥卡万戈三角洲一只幼豹在它母亲旁边休息。尽管豹子大型猫科动物里分布最广,它们中的许多都濒临灭绝,特别是非洲以外的豹子。

African lion cubs play in the grass in the Okavango Delta. Conservationists estimate that unless the current decline is checked, the number of lions will continue to drop significantly.

非洲狮幼崽在奥卡万戈三角洲的草地上玩耍。自然资源保护预测,估计除了现在已知道减少的数量外,非洲狮的数量还将明显减少。

An African lion cub stands on a mound of soil in the Okavango Delta. Geographically isolated lion populations can lead to inbreeding and a lack of genetic diversity, further endangering the species.

奥卡万戈三角洲,非洲狮幼崽站在一个土墩上。地理上的隔绝会让导致近亲交配和基因多样性的减少,让这一物种更危险。

Three of the eight tiger subspecies became extinct in the 20th century, hunted as trophies and also for body parts that are used in traditional Chinese medicine. All five remaining tiger subspecies are endangered.

在20世纪,8种亚洲虎系有3系灭绝,或作为打猎的战利品,或是因为它们身体的某部分可以用于传统的中医。留下来的5种也是濒危物种。

An African lion rests with her cub in the Okavango Delta. As human populations in sub-Saharan Africa expand, the amount of hunting space and habitats for lions decreases.

奥卡万戈三角洲,一头非洲狮妈妈正和它的幼崽一起休息。随着人类在撒哈拉沙漠以南的的非洲扩张,非洲狮打猎和栖息的地方正在减少。
