一头名叫“萨陶”的非洲象,因为长着一副几乎能触地的巨型象牙而被称为“大象之王”,近日因象牙而招杀身之祸。

我们来看一段相关的英文报道

Poachers have killed one of the world's largest elephants – a famed great tusker named Satao – in Tsavo East National Park in Kenya.
"There is no doubt that Satao is dead, killed by an ivory poacher's poisoned arrow to feed the insatiable demand for ivory," Mr Moller said, who is from Tsavo Trust.
Because of a soaring demand for ivory in a number of Asian nations, poaching is highly prevalent in Africa. According to a report published on Friday, more than 20,000 African elephants were poached last year.

在肯尼亚东察沃国家公园,偷猎者杀死了一头世界上最大的大象——著名的长牙大象萨陶(Satao)。
来自察沃基金会的莫勒说:“毫无疑问,萨陶死了,被象牙偷猎者的毒箭给害死了,就仅仅是为了满足对象牙贪得无厌的需求。”
由于一些亚洲国家对象牙的需求急剧增加,这就使得偷猎在非洲地区极为盛行。据周五公布的报告显示,去年,有2万多头大象被猎杀。



【讲解】
文中的ivory用作名词,意为“象牙;象牙制品”,如:She has some jewelry made of ivory.(她有一些象牙首饰。);ivory也可以用作形容词,意为“象牙制的;乳白色的”,如:small ivory flowers乳白色的小花);此外,人们经常把脱离现实生活的小天地称为“象牙塔”,即为ivory tower
文中的poaching解释为“偷猎”,其动词形式是poach,“偷猎者”则为poacher,如:Many national parks set up to provide a refuge for wildlife are regularly invaded by poachers.(很多旨在为野生动物提供庇护的国家公园经常受到偷猎者的入侵。)


今天的作业是翻译下面一句话

Kenyan authorities have estimated that close to 100 elephants have been killed by poachers this year alone.

[ 参考答案:肯尼亚官方估计,仅在今年,就有近百头大象被猎杀。 ]
