bbin电竞   have pushed the pause button on human activity all over the world 按下了全世界人类活动的暂停键

bbin电竞   And while it's been for tragic, costly reasons, we've pushed the pause button on human activity all over the world.由于这场悲剧的、代价惨重的疫情,我们按下了全世界人类活动的暂停键。

  have some profound effects 产生一些深远的影响

bbin电竞   On an increasingly crowded planet, wildlife scientists think that this will have some profound effects.在这个日益拥挤的星球上,野生动物学家们认为人类活动的暂停将产生一些深远的影响。

bbin电竞   share the space we have with many other species 与其它物种分享我们共有的空间

  This pause has been at huge human and economic cost, which is why scientists say it's important to maximise what we can learn from lockdown, about how to share the space we have with many other species.这次人类活动的暂停已造成了巨大的人力和经济损失,这就是为什么科学家们说,重要的是最大限度地利用我们从疫情封锁中学到的东西,来与其它物种分享我们共有的空间。

  get killed by vehicles 被车辆撞死

bbin电竞   Every year, millions of animals get killed by vehicles in the U.S. But that road risk has dropped because of the COVID pandemic.美国每年有无数动物被车辆撞死,但由于新冠肺炎的肆虐,道路风险已经下降。

bbin电竞    how much driving we should do开车频率应该是多少

  And that could really change the discussion after the pandemic-change some of our assumptions about how much driving we should do if we want to protect nature, wildlife, air quality, climate change, and so forth.新冠肺炎后,这可能会真正改变讨论话题--如果想保护自然、保护野生动物、提高空气质量、稳定气候变化等,我们就要改变开车频率。"

   a third fewer collisions 被撞案例减少了三分之一

bbin电竞   The team documented about a third fewer collisions with deer, elk, moose and other large mammals in the four weeks following shutdowns.

bbin电竞    are at risk of local extinction 面临着局部灭绝的危险

  one of the top killers最大的杀手之一

bbin电竞   In California, the researchers also looked specifically at mountain lions. Some populations in urban areas are at risk of local extinction, and vehicles are one of the top killers.在加利福尼亚,研究人员还专门研究了美洲狮。城市地区的一些美洲狮正面临着局部灭绝的危险,而汽车就是最大的杀手之一。

  traffic deaths of mountain lions美洲狮在交通事故中的死亡数

bbin电竞   have dropped by 58 percent 下降了58%

  However, in recent months, traffic deaths of mountain lions have dropped by 58 percent, revealing an important clue about how to save them.然而,近几个月来,美洲狮在交通事故中的死亡人数下降了58%,这也为如何拯救美洲狮提供了重要线索。

  keep them from going extinct 为了防止美洲狮灭绝

  Well, to keep them from going extinct or to recover them, we need to protect them from traffic. And that means we need to build stuff. We need to put in fencing along highways and crossing structures over the highways. And that's a big deal.为了防止美洲狮灭绝,帮它们复兴,我们需要保护它们不受交通影响。这意味着我们需要建造些东西。我们需要在高速公路沿线和高速公路上的交叉构筑物上设置围栏。这很重要。"

bbin电竞   stay-at-home orders are lifted 外出禁令取消

bbin电竞   People are now returning to the roads as stay-at-home orders are lifted. But Shilling hopes some of the lessons might stick.

  grow from this 从中学些东西

bbin电竞   line up behind that 支持
