I want to remind you and, you probably know this already, but my wife, Portia, gave me the most amazing gift for my 60th birthday.
我想说一下 大家可能知道 不过我妻子波西娅 她给了我最棒的60岁生日礼物
She set up the Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund, which is, it's a fund that supports my wild life.
No, it's to raise money, so I can build my very own gorilla campus in Rwanda.
不 是用来筹钱 让我在卢旺达建造自己的大猩猩营地的
And hopefully the gorillas will stay longer than I did at college.
But I love all animals, as you know. But gorillas need our protection right now.
我喜欢动物 大家知道 不过大猩猩迫切需要我们的保护
Because there are only about 800 mountain gorillas left in the world.
And it's hard to know exactly how many because they don't fill out the census forms.
But they think it's about 800. And since I'm building this campus,
I want to educate people about the importance of protecting these amazing creatures.
So gorillas share--and humans share 98% of the same DNA, which is amazing.
I mean I'm pretty sure I have cousins I have less DNA sharing with.
Gorillas are highly intelligent. They can learn sign language.
They know the meaning of over 2,000 words.
I didn't even know we had 2,000 words.
They live with their families.
One of them is the leader and is in charge to up to 30 family members.
They're fascinated by their own reflections.
They spend most of the day grooming each other.
They're basically the Kardashians of the animal kingdom.
They're really, really good climbers.
I once saw this documentary where a gorilla climbed the Empire State Building holding a beautiful woman.
我看过一个纪录片 一只大猩猩爬上了帝国大厦 手里举着一个美女
I'm thinking of King Kong, I'm sorry. But they're powerful.
我说的是《金刚》 不好意思 不过它们很强大
They're very, very strong. On the average, the gorillas are six times stronger than a human.
非常强壮 平均来说 大猩猩比人强壮六倍
That's like the strength of like 40 David Spades. So you can imagine.
There's something that gorillas probably don't want us to talk about.
Apparently, the silverback gorilla has a very small-- how do I put this-- banana.
We're all clear I'm talking about penises right?
So their a, their, their a-- I just want to be clear.
它们 它们 我就是想确保一下
I know just-- I don't want to say penis, so I'm saying banana. OK.
我不想说老二 所以就说香蕉 好
So their banana is about one to three inches and that's fully peeled.
And my question is, how do they even know this?
Whose job is that to find out?
All right, Jones, you're going to track the migration of these amazing animals.
好 琼斯 我们来追踪这些神奇动物的迁徙
And McGillicuddy you're going to look at their social skills.
And the new guy, here's a tape measure.
And I'll let you know later what that's going to--
The thing that's most amazing about these gorillas is how compassionate they are.
This is true. Gorillas will go out of their way to protect humans.
And there are certain cases where gorillas have stopped humans from walking into a poachers trap.
That's pretty amazing. That's how compassionate they are.
Meanwhile, there are a lot of humans who honk their horns the second the light turns green.
They're-- The least we can do is show the same compassion for gorillas as they do for us.
他们 我们至少能像大猩猩对待我们那样 对它们多一点同情心
And I happen to know a great way you can do that.
You can donate to the Ellen DeGeneres Wildlife Fund.
And to everyone watching, every dollar counts.
Even if everyone watching sent $1, or $5, or $100, or $1,000, whatever.
即便每个在看的人捐出1美元 5美元 或者1000美元
I'm not saying to take out a mortgage on your house, but I'm not not saying it.
Just whatever feels right to you. I'm going to go to Rwanda soon.
And I can't wait. I'm so excited about this.
A few years ago, my writer, Jason, traveled there and visited the same national park where my research center is going to be built.
几年前 我的编剧詹森去过那里 参观了一家国家公园 而我的研究中心恰好就要建在那里
And while he was there, this is what I'm going to see, this is video he took.
他在那儿的时候 这就是我将看到的景象 这是他拍的视频
