巴林麦纳麦,6月26日——自6月24日起在麦纳麦召开的世界遗产委员会会议决定将伯利兹堡礁保护区系统移出《濒危世界遗产名录》。

Manama, Bahrain, 26 June—The World Heritage Committee, meeting in Manama since 24 June, decided Tuesday to remove the Belize Barrier Reef Reserve Network from the List of World Heritage in Danger.

委员会认为,伯利兹采取的保护措施提升了对该遗产的保护,特别是在整个伯利兹海域暂停石油开采,及制定为红树林提供更有效保护的林业管理规定,因而会议决定解除对该遗产的濒危评定。

The Committee considered that safeguarding measures taken by the country, notably the introduction of a moratorium on oil exploration in the entire maritime zone of Belize and the strengthening of forestry regulations allowing for better protection of mangroves, warranted the removal of the site from the World Heritage List in Danger.

由于红树林和海洋生态系统遭到破坏,以及海上石油开采和非可持续建筑项目的开发,伯利兹堡礁保护区系统于2009年被列入《濒危世界遗产名录》。

The site was inscribed on the List in Danger in 2009 due to the destruction of mangroves and marine ecosystems, offshore oil extraction, and the development of non-sustainable building projects.

1996年列为世界遗产的伯利兹堡礁保护区系统(https://whc.unesco.org/en/list/764/)是一个突出的自然系统,由北半球最大的屏障礁、离岸环礁、数百沙洲、红树林、沿海泻湖和河口组成。该系统包含的7处遗产地是珊瑚礁演变历史的极好例证,同时也是包括海龟、海牛和美洲咸水鳄等受威胁物种的重要栖息地。

The Belize Barrier Reef Reserve System, inscribed on the World Heritage List in 1996, is an outstanding natural system consisting of the largest barrier reef in the northern hemisphere, offshore atolls, several hundred sand cays, mangrove forests, coastal lagoons and estuaries. The system’s seven sites illustrate the evolutionary history of reef development and are a significant habitat for threatened species, including the marine turtle, the manatee and the American marine crocodile.

《濒危世界遗产名录》的设立宗旨,是当一项世界遗产作为世界遗产的特征条件受到威胁时,向国际社会通报情况,并鼓励遗产所在地采取纠正措施。

The List of World Heritage in Danger is designed to inform the international community of conditions threatening the very characteristics that warranted the inscription of a property on the World Heritage List and encourage corrective measures.

第42届世界遗产委员会会议将于7月4日闭幕。

The 42nd session of the World Heritage Committee continues until 4 July.
