190 Protect Last Great Place

190 保护好“最后的伟大地区”

Two hours from the tall buildings of Manhattan and Philadelphia live some of the world’s largest black bears. They are in northern Pennsylvania’s Pocono Mountains, a home they share with an abundance of other wildlife.

在离曼哈顿和费城的高楼区仅2小时车程的地方生活着一些世界上最大的黑熊。他们聚居在宾夕法尼亚的珀考农山脉的北部,和其他的野生动物共享一个家园。

The streams, lakes, meadows, mountain ridges and forests that make the Poconos an ideal place for black bears have also attracted more people to the region. Open spaces are threatened by plans for housing estates and important habitats are endangered by highway construction. To protect the Poconos natural beauty from irresponsible development, the Nature Conservancy named the area one of America’s “Last Great Places”.

数不尽的小溪,湖泊,草地,山脉和森林使得珀考农地区成为黑熊的理想的栖息地,同时也吸引了越来越多的人来到这里。这里开阔的地域受到了房地产开发计划的威胁,重要的动物栖息地因建高速公路而陷入危机。为了保护珀考农地区的自然美景,使其免受那些不负责任的开发行为的影响,大自然保护协会把这一地区称为美国。最后一个伟大的地方”之一。

Operating out of a century-old schoolhouse in the village of Long Pond, Pennsylvania, the conservancy’s bud Cook is working with local people and business leaders to balance economic growth with environmental protection. By forging partnerships with people like Francis Altemose, the Conservancy has been able to protect more than 14,000 acres of environmentally important land in the area.

在宾夕法尼亚的朗庞德村庄有一栋逾时上百年的校舍,大自然保护协会的成员巴德·库克就在这里与当地居民和商业领导一同合作,想要在经济发展与环境保护之间建立一种良好。的平衡。通过与弗朗西丝·阿尔特摩斯等人建立合作关系,环保协会已经这一地区保护了多达14000英亩的,在环境学角度上看有着重要价值的土地。

Altemose’s family has farmed in the Pocono area for generations. Two years ago Francis worked with the Conservancy to include his farm in a county farmland protection program. As a result, his family’s land can be protected from development and the Altemoses will be better able to provide a secure financial future for their 7-year-old grandson.

阿尔特摩斯家几代人都在珀考农地区务农。两年前,弗朗西丝与环保协会合作,把自家的农场纳入了农村农田保护规划之中,结果,他家的土地得以不被开发,这样一来阿尔特摩斯家就可以为他们7岁大的孙子的未来发展提供更为稳固的经济保障。

Cook attributes the Conservancy’s success in the Poconos to having a local presence and a commitment to working with local residents.

库克把环保协会在珀考农地区的成功归于当地人民的广泛参与和与当地居民竭诚合作。

“The key to protecting these remarkable lands is connecting with the local community,” Cook said. “The people who live there respect the land. They value quiet forests, clear streams and abundant wildlife. They are eager to help with conservation effort.

库克说:“保护这些优质土地的关键是要与当地社区联系,住在这里的人敬仰土地。他们珍爱宁静的森林,清澈的小溪和丰富的野生生物。他们会为保护工作热切地提供帮助。”
