选了两个翻……

Shark fin (China)

鱼翅(中国)

"One quarter of species of shark are at risk of extinction and demand for fins is a substantial component of this threat," says Professor Michael McCarthy, a conservationist at the University of Melbourne.

“四分之一种类的鲨鱼都面临着灭绝的危险,其中主要的原因在于对其鱼鳍的需求”Micharl McCarthy教授,一位在墨尔本大学的自然资源保护者这样说道

You're mostly likely to come across shark fin soup in China, where the expensive dish is traditionally served at weddings, or to welcome guests and to show respect at other formal occasions.

你有可能在中国看到过鱼翅羹,这样昂贵的菜肴在习惯上是在婚礼上提供的,或是在其他正式场合欢迎宾客及表示尊重的

In Asia, consumption of shark fins and meat is legal.

在亚洲,鲨鱼的鱼翅和鱼肉的消费是合法的。

Recently some airlines and hotels in Hong Kong removed shark fin from their menus in response to the controversy and China banned the serving of shark fin at official government banquets.

最近一些香港的航班和酒店把鱼翅从他们的菜单上移出以回应这种争议,中国大陆则在政府官方的宴会上禁止了提供鱼翅。

 

Gorilla (Republic of the Congo)

大猩猩(刚果共和国)

Gorillas have been pushed to the brink of extinction due to their popularity as bushmeat.

由于兽肉的广受欢迎,大猩猩已经到了灭绝的边缘

In cities such as Pointe Noire in the Republic of the Congo, smoked gorilla meat is sold openly (but illegally) at markets.

刚果共和国里像是黑角这样的城市,熏制的猩猩肉在市场上公开出售(但是是非法的)。

It's believed that more than 400 gorillas are killed for bushmeat every year, despite the fact that the species is listed as critically endangered by the IUCN.

普遍认为由于猎寻兽肉每年有超过400只黑猩猩被杀,尽管事实上一些种类已被国际自然与自然资源保护联合会列为濒危物种。

The species' low productive rates mean that even low levels of hunting have a devastating effect on populations.

这些物种的低出产率意味着即使是低层次的捕杀也会对其数量造成带来灾难性的后果。

 

Dolphin (Japan, Taiwan)
海豚(日本,台湾)

Sale of dolphin meat for consumption is common and legal in Japan, although it's often mislabeled and sold as whale meat, which sells for much more.

海豚肉的消费在日本是很常见且是合法的,虽然这经常被错当卖的更多鲸肉售卖。
