「我家有個動物園」- The Animal Family Portrait


框選或點兩下字幕可以直接查字典喔!

When I graduated college, I didn't really know what I wanted to do with my life. I took a trip to Australia. I found a job at a small wildlife park called Caversham. I have always loved animals but had no clue what it was like to work with them. I didn't see the depth of the job in front of me. I just saw animals.
在我大學畢業時,我並不確切知道我人生想做些什麼。我到澳洲旅行。我在一座叫Caversham的小型野生動物園找到一份工作。我一直以來都很喜愛動物,但並不曉得跟牠們一起工作會是怎樣。我並沒有看到我面前這份工作的深度。我只看到動物們。

Caversham is owned and run by mother, father, brother and sister. After seeing how much training was involved, I was amazed that Debbie hired me. They taught me my entire foundation as far as caring for animals. I loved every aspect of it, and I felt like a part of their family.
Caversham是由母親、父親、哥哥和妹妹所擁有和經營。在看到多少的訓練牽涉其中之後,我很訝異Debbie雇用了我。他們就照料動物方面教導了我整個基礎。我深愛其中每個面向,我覺得我像是他們家庭的一份子。

I was really upset when it came time to leave Australia because my visa had ended. It was very heartbreaking. But luckily I was entering a new phase in my life, as a zookeeper at the Alabama Gulf Coast Zoo.
當到了要離開澳洲的時候我非常難過,因為我的簽證到期了。那非常令人心碎。但幸運地我進入了我人生中一個嶄新的階段,在Alabama Gulf Coast動物園當一個動物管理員。

Caring for animals is a tremendous responsibility but it's also the biggest pleasure in my life. It's very rewarding. Every day I miss my friends back in Australia. And when I get to do something really cool for the first time, I just think it's because of them.
照顧動物是一項重大的責任,但它也同樣是我人生中最大的樂趣。非常值回票價。每天我都想念過去在澳洲的朋友們。當我第一次能做些非常酷的事情時,我就認為那是因為他們的緣故。

It's really important to me that I keep in touch with everyone from back at Caversham and see them face-to-face. It's a lot of fun to see how big the animals have gotten. I cannot describe my love for these animals. I need to know what's going on. Tell me the latest.
對我來說很重要的是和過去在Caversham的每個人保持聯繫並當面看到他們。看到這些動物已經長得有多大非常有趣。我無法形容我對這些動物的愛。我需要知道發生什麼事。告訴我最新消息。

This is what happens when Americans raise roos.
這就是當美國人養袋鼠時會發生的事。

Without Caversham, never in a million years will I be doing what I'm doing today. I always take the time to thank them, "Thank you. You got me here, thank you."
沒有Caversham的話,再過一百萬年我也不會做我現在做的事。我總是花時間感謝他們:「謝謝你們。你們把我帶到這裡,謝謝你們。」

Family is not limited to blood by any means in my world. It's an amazing experience to have the people who live so far away with the animals I love the most in my living room even though they're a world apart. It's like the distance isn't there. For a moment, we were at zoo.
在我的世界,家人絕非受限於血緣。即使他們在世界兩端,還是能讓住在如此遙遠的人們和我最喜歡的動物們出現在我的客廳裡,這是個很棒的經驗。好像那距離不存在。在那一刻,我們都身在動物園裡。

There's so much about it to love.
有太多可以喜愛的東西了。

To have all of my Australian family and my animals all together is really something special.
讓我所有澳洲家人還有我的動物們聚在一起真是件特別的事。
