圖片來源:FWS美國魚類及野生動植物機構提議,欲減少斑海雀超過90%的棲地保護區。斑海雀體型大小與知更鳥相近,為生長於太平洋的一種瀕絕海鳥。聯邦機構表示,此一大幅度的縮減已通過批准,因上述保護區絕大部分被認定為對斑海雀之存續有其重要性,而此種鳥類已受到其他相關法規及計劃之保護。

Major Cut Proposed for Marbled Murrelet Habitat
PORTLAND, Oregon, September 12, 2006 (ENS)
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service has proposed cutting designated critical habitat for the marbled murrelet, a threatened Pacific seabird, by more than 90 percent. The federal agency said the drastic reduction is warranted because much of the habitat identified as vital to the survival of the robin-sized seabird is protected by other existing regulations and plans.
