The Safest Penguins in the World 被地雷守護的企鵝天堂 How many birds have their own personal armed guards protecting them 24 hours a day? 有多少鳥類有自己的私人武裝保鑣二十四小時整天保護著牠們呢？
The Falkland Islands are made up of several hundred small islands located at the bottom of the world off the tip of South America. For such a small, remote spot, it is amazing that it created such a political mess. In the early 1980s, both Britain and Argentina wanted to claim this chain of islands for their own. In fact, they even went to war over them. Britain finally won and controls the islands to this day.
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. Luckily, these flightless▼ birds are not heavy enough to set off the mines. Actually, the landmines help form a unique preserve▼, one that people have little choice but to keep out of. In the end, the mines have helped the penguin population recover and act as their silent protectors.
