The Safest Penguins in the World

被地雷守護的企鵝天堂

As a result of the war, the Falkland Islands were covered in tens of thousands of landmines. Some have been removed, but there are still around 20,000 of them left. Today, though, these dangerous weapons are actually protecting some of the islands' natives—penguins. The penguins benefit from the landmines because the mines separate their nesting areas from humans and their farm animals. This gives the penguins a place to raise their young in peace.

由於戰爭的緣故,福克蘭群島被成千上萬的地雷所覆蓋。有些地雷已經被移除,但仍然有大約兩萬個遺留在那裡。然而,這些危險的武器其實卻在今日保護著一些島上的原始動物──企鵝。地雷為這些企鵝帶來了好處,因為這些地雷把企鵝的築巢區與人類以及他們的牲畜分隔開來。這使得企鵝得以在平靜的環境下養育小企鵝。
