Cheng Long Wetlands is located in Cheng Long Village, Ko-Hu, Yun-Lin County, one of the subsidence areas in the south-west coast of Taiwan. The original farming land became unusable due to the subsidence and seawater intrusion. In recent years, the Forestry Bureau has rented the land for reservation and turned it into an important habitat for migrating birds.

Only 600 people living in Cheng Long Village, most of them are elderly and children. Even without supermarket, cinemas, café or any fancy leisure spaces here, resident artists can bring extraordinary cultural experiences into this little village. Through this annual environmental art project, all participants can understand the land situation and village culture in Taiwan, and foster new actions toward the environment protection.
