    Hawai'i Volcanoes

    National Park Hawai'i

World Heritage Site 世界遗产

 

Established on August 1, 1916, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes National Park preserves for the enjoyment, education, and inspiration of this and future generations, the significant resources that reflect Hawaiʻi's geological, biological, and cultural heritage. These resources demonstrate the powerful and awe-inspiring volcanic forces the create new land and the unique adaptations of plants, animals, and people to that land.

夏威夷火山国家自公园成立于191681日成立以来,一直致力于保护夏威夷独特的地质、生物及自然资源、传承历史文化,确保重要资源满足当代及子孙后代的享受及教育功能。夏威夷火山国家公园展示了强大而令人敬畏的火山力量、动植物在这片火山创造出的土地上的形成独特自然演替及独特的人文文化。

The park's 333,086 acres extend from sea level to 13,677' and encompass the summits and rift zones of two of the world's most active volcanoes, Kīlauea and Mauna Loa. Kīlauea has been in nearly continuous eruption since 1983; Mauna Loa last erupted in 1984. The park's seven ecological zones harbor distinct plant and animal communities-home to many engaging creatures ( happyface spiders, carnivorous caterpillars, picture wing flies, etc.) and are refuge for many endangered species ( hawksbill turtle and Hawaiian goose, dark-rumped petrel, hawk, and hoary bat ).

夏威夷火山国家公园总面积达333086英亩,海拔跨度大,从海平面一直延伸至13677英尺的山顶,包括两座世界上最活跃的火山-基拉韦厄和冒纳罗亚火山,以及两座火山的裂隙带。基拉韦厄火山自1983年开始至今持续喷发;冒纳罗亚火山最近一次喷发时间为1984年。夏威夷火山国家公园内的7个生态保护带很好地保护夏威夷独特的动植物种群(如夏威夷笑脸蜘蛛、食肉毛虫等)及庇护珍惜濒危物种(如玳瑁(一种海龟)、夏威夷雁(NeNe)、夏威夷隼、夏威夷灰白蝙蝠等)。

The park perpetuates the island's native Hawaiian culture and protects numerous and significant archeological sites - tangible reminders of an indigenous people forever linked to this land. Here in this wahi kapu, sacred place, the beat of the drum and heartfelt expression of chant remind us that culture of Hawaiʻi is very alive.

历史文化传承,是夏威夷火山国家公园的另一个使命,境内的多处考古遗址得以保护。作为有形的文化资源,这些遗址体现了土著先民们同这片神圣土地间的联系;清脆的鼓声、醉人的夏威夷圣歌告诉我们夏威夷文化的昌盛繁荣。

In recognition of its outstanding values, Hawaiʻi Volcanoes has been designated an International Biosphere Reserve (1980) and a World Heritage Site(1987).

鉴于其独特的重要意义,夏威夷火山国家公园语1980年被评为人与生物圈保护区,于1987年被列入世界遗产名录。
