Natural World Thrives under Corona Lockdown
全球封鎖讓自然界因禍得福
-Helen Gamble
9/7
Early in 2020, the city of Wuhan, China, became the first place to order its citizens to stay home due to the COVID-19 outbreak. One after the other, cities around the world followed suit and “lockdown” became the new normal. Such measures to stop the spread of the disease posed serious problems to the global economy. However, they also had unexpected benefits for the natural world and the planet as a whole.
One of the first positive effects of the lockdown was a significant fall in air pollution. As transportation and industrial activities came almost to a complete stop, lower levels of pollution could be seen in satellite images of Europe and Asia. Soon, these improvements became more than obvious on Earth too, as skies turned blue, rivers became clearer, and people rediscovered the luxury of breathing clean air. The Indian capital, New Delhi, for example, saw a 60-percent reduction in air pollution during India’s lockdown—an amazing feat for a place that is often named as the world’s most polluted city. Other cities, including New York, Seoul, and London, also experienced dramatic improvements in air quality.

二○二○年年初,由於新冠肺炎疫情爆發,中國武漢市成為第一個下令市民待在家裡的地方。世界各地的城市接二連三跟進,封鎖成為新的常態。這樣阻止疾病傳播的措施對全球經濟造成嚴重的問題。然而,它們對自然界和整個地球卻也帶來意想不到的好處。
封鎖首先的正面效應之一就是空氣汙染顯著減少。由於運輸和工業活動幾乎完全停擺,在歐洲和亞洲的人造衛星影像上都能看見汙染程度下降。不久,隨著天空變藍,河川變得更清澈,以及人們重新發現呼吸乾淨空氣的奢侈,這些改善在地球上也變得非常明顯。舉例來說,印度首都新德里在鎖國期間見證了空氣汙染減少百分之六十——這對一個經常被稱為全世界汙染最嚴重的城市來說是一項驚人的成就。其他城市包括紐約、首爾和倫敦的空氣品質也有大幅的改善。

9/8
Wildlife has also benefited from the lack of human activity. Not long into the global lockdown, wild animals were seen reclaiming the land. In Thailand, leatherback turtles were able to nest on empty beaches. As very few baby turtles manage to survive, this represents a great boost for the threatened species. It wasn’t only turtles that found more freedom, though. Other animals became increasingly bold and began to enter places usually reserved for humans. Deer were spotted in people’s gardens, and wild boar, sheep, goats, and even kangaroos were seen on city streets.
The news hasn’t been all good, however. Along with other businesses, conservation organizations have had to close their doors and cease their important work, at least for the time being. There is also concern that the illegal trade in wild animals, which many hoped would end due to infection fears, may actually increase as people lose their regular income and become more desperate. It remains to be seen whether the positive environmental effects of the 2020 global lockdown will be long-lasting or just a temporary reprieve as humans attempt to return to “business as usual.”

缺乏人類活動也讓野生動物受益。全球進入封鎖沒多久,野生動物就被看見正在收復大地。在泰國,棱皮龜得以在空蕩蕩的海灘上築巢。由於很少有幼龜能存活,這對這個瀕危物種有很大的幫助。不過並非只有烏龜找到更多的自由。其他動物也越來越大膽,開始進入通常是專門留給人類的地方。鹿在人類的花園裡被瞧見,而野豬、綿羊、山羊、甚至袋鼠都被看到出現在城市的街道上。
然而,並非全然都是好消息。除了其他企業外,保育組織也必須關門停止重要的工作,至少暫時是如此。也有人擔心野生動物的非法交易(許多人希望會因為擔心感染而停止)實際上可能會增加,因為人們失去固定收入而鋌而走險。在人類試圖回到「一如往常」的生活時,二○二○年的這場全球封鎖對環境的正面效應會持續很久或只是暫時緩解,仍有待觀察。
