Text 2

Task 8. a) Read and translate the text.


Missing marmosets, alligators, penguins: thieves are targeting Europe’s Zoos and safari parks to supply animal collectors who want to own more exotic species. Conservationists say the practice is harming animals, threatening vital breeding programs and adding to an already flourishing illegal trade in exotic birds and animals.

We live in a designer world and people are not satisfied any more with a budgie or a canary, they want something rare. The more exotic or endangered the animal, the higher the price. For example, one rare hyacinth macaw is worth $45,000. British zoos have suffered a major theft every week for the past few years involving dozens of animals worth thousands of dollars.

Conservationists say that the demand for exotic animals will put further pressure on wild populations, which thieves have already targeted for years. At the meeting of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES) they discussed how a vast trade in exotic birds – both legal and illegal – has decimated populations of African gray parrots, prized for their ability to mimic human speech.

Zoo thefts made headlines last when a 3-month-old penguin Toga was stolen from Amazon World Zoo Park on the Isle of Wight, off southern Britain. He was never found. His parents Kyala and Oscar mourned the loss for several weeks. The manager of the Park thinks that Toga must have been stolen to order by professionals.

There are casual thefts too. Once, a man abducted an alligator from a zoo in central England and took him to a party to impress his friends. Then he left him on the doorstep of a pet shop.

But the problem is that these animals are not tame and you need to know how to handle and care for them or they may die.

Many zoos are now increasing security and some are tagging and chipping their animals.



b) Make a glossary. Choose seven words to remember.

c) Answer the questions:

1. What endangered species are mentioned in the text?

2. What does CITES stand for?

3. How can Customs authorities help to protect wildlife?

4. What do you think about the people who collect exotic animals?
