【巴黎消息2011.6.21

由於在保護工作上取得重大的進展,曼納斯野生動物保護區(印度)終於從《瀕危世界遺產清單》中脫身。

座落於喜馬拉雅山腳的曼納斯野生動物保護區,乃是種類極多的野生動物的原鄉,其中包括許多瀕臨滅絕的物種,例如老虎、侏儒豬、印度犀牛與印度象,自從1992年就被列為瀕危世界遺產,也就是在它榮登聯合國教科文組織《世界遺產名錄》7年之後,就慘遭此命運。

世界遺產委員會此刻正在巴黎召開第35屆會議,注意到因擁有「突出普遍價值」而被登錄為世界遺產的此處保護區,已經從持續損害及族群不穩定中逐漸恢復應有的保護狀態。

Significant improvements in the preservation of Manas Wildlife Sanctuary have allowed for its withdrawal from the List of World Heritage List Danger.

Situated on the foothills of the Himalayas the Manas sanctuary, home to a great variety of wildlife, including many endangered species, such as the tiger, pygmy hog, Indian rhinoceros and Indian elephant, was inscribed on the List in Danger in 1992, seven years after it had entered UNESCO’s List of World Heritage.

The World Heritage Committee, presently holding its 35th session in Paris, noted that the outstanding universal value for which the property was inscribed on the World Heritage list was recovering from damages sustained during ethnic unrest in the site.
