What is the driest place on Earth?

地球上最干旱的地方是哪里?

Sahara Desert, Atacama Desert, Pelican Point, Namibia, or Dry Valleys, Antarctica?

撒哈拉沙漠,阿塔卡马沙漠,鹈鹕角,纳米比亚,还是南极洲的干燥山谷?

As their name suggests, Antarctica's Dry Valleys have extremely low humidity and almost no snow or ice to cover them.

正如他们的名字所表明的那样,南极洲的干燥山谷湿度极低,几乎没有冰雪覆盖。

AZUZ: An international campaign has been launched to create a massive sanctuary, a protective area in the oceans around Antarctica. But that would make fishing there illegal. And that's part of the reason why efforts like this have failed in years past.

在南极洲周围的海洋保护区,一项国际运动已经启动,以建立一个巨大的避难所。但这将使捕鱼非法。这也是为什么类似项目在过去几年失败的部分原因。

According to the environmental group Greenpeace, the international fishing industry has been using these waters to catch krill. These animals are like tiny shrimp. They're an important food source for the animals around Antarctica. The krill are also important to people as they can be used in oils, supplements and pet food.

据环保组织绿色和平组织称,国际捕鱼业一直在利用这些水域捕获磷虾。这些动物就像小虾。它们是南极洲周围动物的重要食物来源。磷虾对人们来说也很重要,因为它们可以用于油、补充剂和宠物食品。

We don't know yet whether the international community will agree to establish a new sanctuary but we did get a close-up view of Antarctica.

我们还不知道国际社会是否会同意建立一个新的避难所,但是我们确实看到了南极洲的近景。
