小编摘要:由于佛教有放生的传统,因而每年清明也会有许多人选择放生动物。但是应当引起重视的是,放生不当可能会造成本地的生态被严重破坏!

  原产于美国中南部、被称为“生态杀手”的巴西龟正成为不少上海人的宠物,而这是一个相当危险的举动。因为巴西龟很可能制造类似于一枝黄花、水葫芦的生态恶果。
  事实上,世界多国已对巴西龟下达禁令,而世界自然基金会与中国动物学会两栖爬行动物学分会、《中国国家地理》曾共同发表呼吁书,呼吁遏制其蔓延趋势。
  围绕着巴西龟,来自中国动物学会两栖爬行动物学分会的专家态度明确:不要当宠物养,养了别放生。

 

巴西龟放生需谨慎

 

Wildlife protection authorities yesterday called for pet raisers not to release red-eared sliders into local rivers, warning they will damage the ecological balance.

According to Buddhist traditions, freeing captive animals brings virtue and merits to a person in the next life, thus many believers buy animals or reptiles and let them loose.

This is especially common around the Qingming Festival, which falls next Tuesday this year. Turtles and fish are commonly freed.

Red-eared sliders, which are native to Brazil, Central America and the southeastern United States, are available in most flower and bird markets in Shanghai.

Vendors said most Shanghai people buy sliders to set them free or to raise as pets, but in Guangdong Province, many people eat them.

The trade has aroused strong concern among officials.

"The sliders have a strong ability to adapt to local rivers and they threaten turtles native to Shanghai," said Pei En'le, director of the Shanghai Wildlife Protection Center.

Pei said they checked more than 10 parks and found only red-eared sliders living in rivers or lakes. No native turtles were spotted.

"Although we cannot confirm this was caused solely by the sliders, it is a big warning.

"It's impossible for us to monitor everyone releasing creatures into waterways.

All we can do is tell people about the harm these turtles cause," Pei said.
