Eastern Fujian Series Ep. 1: Natural pasture for goats on the sea


 , Updated 15:46, 28-Jan-2024

The eastern waters of Xiapu County in east China's Fujian Province embrace an island that is half precipice and half greenery, shaped by erosion from wind and tides. The eastern part of the island is dominated by towering rocks adorned with only lichens and some drought-saline-tolerant plants. In contrast, the western part of the island features gentle slopes and lush grass, creating a natural pasture for the native goat—the eastern Fujian white-browed goat.

About 'Journeys in Nature: Eastern Fujian Series'

The coastal regions in east China's Fujian Province are rich in biodiversity. Goats endemic to the region climb to the top of the seaside mountains to graze. Sea birds circle the cliffs where their nests have been built. In this series, CGTN Nature will take you to where the mountains meet the ocean.
