動物王朝 第二集

南極洲 阿特卡灣的秋天 Autumn in Atka Bay, Antarctica.

幾周前 這里還是一片海闊天空 Just a few weeks ago, this was open sea.

如今 正在形成冰封雪蓋的新景象 Now, a new frozen landscape is forming.

毫無生機的新世界出現了 This new world appears devoid of life.

也并不是全無生機 Well, almost.

一只皇帝企鵝 An emperor penguin.

它并非孑然一身 And he is not alone.

數千只帝企鵝正向這處冰凍的海灣匯集 Thousands of emperors are coming to this frozen bay.

新結成的冰層 They are here because the new ice

為它們提供了最安全的繁殖地 provides the safest place for them to breed.

冰層會保持冰封九個月 The ice will last nine months,

直到夏季來臨時融化 before melting away next summer.

它們將利用這九個月中的每一天 And they will need every day of those nine months

來撫育偉大帝企鵝王朝的后代 to raise the next generation of this great emperor dynasty.

但要做到這一點 But to do so,

它們必須熬過即將來臨的冬季 they will have to survive the coming winter.

地球上最冷 最殘酷的 The coldest and the cruellest

冬季 on earth.

皇帝企鵝

帝企鵝每年都會重新擇偶 Emperors pair up anew every year...

盡管冬季即將來臨 And although winter is fast approaching,

尋找完美伴侶的過程 the process of finding the perfect partner

卻不能操之過急 cannot be hurried.

新結成的企鵝夫妻會進行優雅的儀式 New couples perform a graceful ritual

來鞏固對彼此的承諾 that will cement their commitment to each other.

保持動作同步 Moving together in synchrony

是建立有力情感紐帶的關鍵 is the key to creating a powerful bond.

這必須成為自然界中最牢固的紐帶之一 And this bond needs to be one of the strongest in nature...

因為這里每個家庭的存亡 Because the survival of every family here,

以及整個王朝的延續 and therefore the survival of this dynasty,

都取決于這一紐帶 depends upon it.

企鵝的身體構造使其能完美應對很多事 A penguin is beautifully designed for many things...

但交配卻不是其中之一 But mating is not one of them.

遺憾的是 不是所有企鵝 Unfortunately, not all the penguins
