  ►A dead sperm whale that washed ashore in a national park in Indonesia had nearly 6kg (13 lbs) of plastic waste in its stomach, park officials say.

  公园官员说,在印度尼西亚国家公园冲上岸的、死去的抹香鲸胃里发现有近6公斤(13磅)的塑料垃圾。

  Items found included 115 drinking cups, four plastic bottles, 25 plastic bags and two flip-flops.

  这些垃圾包括115个饮水杯、4个塑料瓶、25个塑料袋和两个人字拖。

  The carcass of the 9.5m (31ft) mammal was found in waters near Kapota Island in the Wakatobi National Park late on Monday.

  周一晚些时候,在 Wakatobi 国家公园的 Kapota 岛附近海域,官员发现了一头9.5米(31英尺)长的哺乳动物的尸体。

  The discovery has caused consternation among environmentalists.

  这一发现引起了环保主义者的恐慌。

  "Although we have not been able to deduce the cause of death, the facts that we see are truly awful," Dwi Suprapti, a marine species conservation co-ordinator at WWF Indonesia, was quoted as saying by the Associated Press.

  “虽然我们无法推断死亡原因,但我们看到的事实确实非常糟糕,”美联社报道援引印度尼西亚世界自然基金会海洋物种保护协调员 Dwi Suprapti 的话说。

  It was not possible to say whether the plastic had caused the whale’s death because of its advanced state of decay, she added.

  她补充说,很难说塑料是否是鲸鱼死亡的诱因,因为尸体被发现时已经很腐烂了。

  In a tweet, WWF Indonesia gave the breakdown of what was found inside the animal: "Hard plastic (19 pieces, 140g), plastic bottles (4 pieces, 150g), plastic bags (25 pieces, 260g), flip-flops (2 pieces, 270g), pieces of string (3.26kg) & plastic cups (115 pieces, 750g)."

  在一条推文中,世界自然基金会印度尼西亚细数了这只鲸鱼体内的垃圾:“硬塑料(19件,140克)、塑料瓶(4件,150克)、塑料袋(25件,260克)、人字拖(2件,270克)、绳子(3.26千克)和塑料杯(115 碎片,750克)。”

  The use of throwaway plastic is a particular problem in some South East Asian countries, including Indonesia.

  在一些东南亚国家,包括印度尼西亚,一次性塑料的使用很严重。

  Five Asian nations - China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Thailand - account for up to 60% of the plastic waste that ends up in oceans, according to a 2015 report by environmental campaigner Ocean Conservancy and the McKinsey Center for Business and Environment.

  根据环境保护者海洋保护协会和麦肯锡商业与环境中心2015年的一份报告,五个亚洲国家(中国,印度尼西亚,菲律宾,越南和泰国)生产了全球60%的海洋塑料废物。
