Cheng-Long Wetlands is a developing wetlands of over 100 hectares located in rural Yunlin County, on the South-central coast of Taiwan. The Cheng-Long Wetlands are very close to the ocean (Taiwan Straits) and the climate is tropical with warm days and nights all year. There are several small villages nearby, and people here usually make their living from fish farms and agriculture. In the village of Cheng Long there is an elementary school with 75 children in grades 1 – 6 (about ages 6-12). In Cheng Long there is also a temple and several small shops, but it is a simple town with mostly a traditional life. The community is economically depressed now, and most young people leave to find jobs elsewhere. The Cheng Long Wetlands are beautiful expanses of shallow brackish water with lots of wildlife such as crabs, fish, etc. and water plants such as reeds. In a village that is close to Cheng Long there are many oyster farms with huge piles of white oyster shells.
