A female white elephant plays with her friend in an enclosure near Uppatasanti Pagoda in Nay Pyi Taw. The pale pachyderm was caught in Thalatkhwar forest reserve, Pathein Township, Ayeyarwady Region in February 27, 2015. She is the ninth white elephant being captured.

在内比都大金塔附近的围场里,一头雌性白象和她的伙伴在打闹。2015年2月27日 在Ayeyarwady区Pathein乡Thalatkhwar森林保护区,一头白象被捕了,她是第九只被捕获的大象。

The decline in the number of Myanmar’s wild elephants due to the annual poaching becomes a serious cause for concern. Since about 40 wild elephants were poached during 2017, the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute stated that this number exceeds the average annual rate of wild elephants’ deaths in Myanmar.

由于每年的偷猎,缅甸野生大象数量的减少成为一个令人严重关切的问题。自2017年期间,约有40只野生大象被偷猎,Smithsonian保护生物学研究所称,这一数字超过了缅甸野生大象死亡的平均年率。

Within a few decades back Myanmar’s wild elephants numbered about thousands. Now their numbers are likely to fall immensely in reality though they are estimated to fall to between 1400 and 2000.

几十年前,缅甸的野生大象大约有数千头。现在,他们的数字在现实中很可能会大幅下降,尽管据估计他们会在1400到2000年间下降。

Captured elephant skins found in Ayeyarwady Region, lower Myanmar in April 2018. Most of the killings happened in Ayeyarwady Region.

2018年4月,在缅甸南部的Ayeyarwady地区发现了猎捕的象皮。大部分杀戮发生在Ayeyarwady地区。

 Not only the tuskers are targeted for poaching but also the female elephants and calves fall into victims because of the currently soaring demand for the elephant hide, so unless the conservation works are enhanced, Myanmar’s wild elephants can become extinct.

不仅象牙是偷猎的目标,而且由于目前对大象的需求激增,雌象和小牛也会成为受害者,除非保护大象。

2019年国际大奖 参展摄影家

Ko Myo (孔米优 / 缅甸)

KoMyo是一名自由摄影师,从事纪实摄影。2013年在缅甸摄影协会学习结束后,就进入了摄影领域。此后,他参加了仰光摄影节,他的摄影作品在2014年、2015年、2017年和2018均获奖。
KoMyo工作的重点是缅甸的大象。他特别关注由于森林砍伐导致大象与人类的冲突日益加剧的问题。由于象牙、象皮和象骨的商业价值,导致它们的数量迅速减少。
KoMyo希望通过摄影,让人们认识到大象的生活困境,最大限度减少人类对大象生活的影响,保护大象。他希望他的工作能让人们认识到人类与这些濒临灭绝的动物之间的关系何等重要。
