Hello everyone,

I've just come across the following sentence and I don't really undertand the meaning of stare. Please, could you help me to translate this phrase into Spanish?


They really are staring over the precipice into extinction

Thank you in advance

    En español, la traducción literal (fijarse, contemplar) no funciona. Si quieres conservar la imagen del precipicio, staring sería "enfrentarse con el" o "asomarse al" abismo de la extinción.
