Wild Istanbul | 野性伊斯坦布尔 (4K)

1 x 52 min
Worldwide except for Germany and France

This stunning metropolis has a flavor of two continents – Asia and Europe, divided and connected by the Bosporus straits, where the salty waters of the Sea of Marmara mix with the currents of the Black Sea. Though the Bosporus is one of the world’s busiest shipping routes you can still see three different species of dolphin here – reminiscent of the sagas of the ancient world. Living relics of antiquity are everywhere in Istanbul: for example, the martens were imported by Egyptian traders to protect their sacks of seeds.
For migrating birds Istanbul is a toehold as they head north for the European spring. But some animals have come to stay: wild wolves, invading from the east, mate with wild dogs. It’s happening today as it has for generations, so that now some scientists talk of a new species: the wolfdog.

这座迷人的大都市有两大洲的特色:亚洲和欧洲,被博斯普鲁斯海峡分割和连接。尽管博斯普鲁斯海峡是世界上最繁忙的航线之一,你仍然可以在这里看到三种海豚,而众所周知的是野猪会横渡海峡! 对于候鸟来说,伊斯坦布尔是它们在春天向欧洲北部迁徙时的立足点。一些动物已经来这里定居:被海关官员放生的外来鹦鹉,从东方入侵并与城市流浪动物交配的野狼,以及埃及商人带到这里的石貂,现在已经成为大巴扎上的永久居民。
