🐂 Let's learn about Taiwan's ox culture and protect these precious animals and cultural assets!


Background Info 

Changhua's Xizhou district is an important center of Taiwan's traditional ox-farming, 
known for its rich ox culture. Guided by the local revitalizations team, students will have the opportunity to understand the journey of symbiosis between farmers and oxen, interact with the cattle first-hand, and experience the charm of the enduring agricultural heritage.

Meanwhile, Changhua's Fangyuan district is famous for its sea ox culture. 
People living by the sea used sea ox to assist oyster farming. 
In 2020, it was registered as Changhua's first intangible cultural heritage under the category of "traditional knowledge and practices". With only eight sea oxen left in Taiwan, they are incredibly valuable. We invited the founder of the Sea Ox School to share with us the beauty and sorrow of sea ox and oyster farming.
