  • 全世界第3处澎湖成“神话之鸟”繁殖地

    原标题:全世界第3处 澎湖成“神话之鸟”繁殖地   台海网(微博)7月31日讯 据台湾《中国时报》报道,全球不超过50只的“神话之鸟”黑嘴端凤头燕鸥,6月间在台湾澎湖县自然保留区鸡善屿现踪,也让当地成为全世界确认的第3处黑嘴端凤头燕鸥繁殖地。 据报道,黑嘴端凤头燕鸥数量极为稀少,被世界各国列为“极危”鸟种,一度几乎消失在人类视野长达60多年。 台湾澎湖县自然保留区无人岛于2012年首度发现1只,去年及今年又再次被发现成双成对出现于澎湖鸡善屿并开始繁殖,显见已稳定地在澎湖生态繁衍。 据报道,澎湖也成为目前世界已确认的第3处黑嘴端凤头燕鸥繁殖地,另2处分别是浙江省韭山县、台湾连江县马祖地区。 发现人澎湖县野鸟学会调查组长郑谦逊表示,在马祖列岛的中岛拍摄到黑嘴端凤头燕鸥,虽然数量只有12只,但已是纪录上发现的最大族群量。 澎湖县农渔局指出,这次黑嘴端凤头燕鸥是于6月间发现,但基于生态保育考虑,迟迟不敢对外公布,深怕民众好奇登岛破坏生态栖地。 澎湖农渔局强调,凡欲进出自然保留区、野生动物保护区皆须向澎湖县政府农渔局申请许可,恣意登岛属违法行为。 原文连接:http://news.ifeng.com/a/20140731/41387916_0.shtml 相关文件:http://www.hkbws.org.hk/BBS/redirect.php?tid=21535&goto=lastpost#lastpost
