Short Essay Writing Practices Series were written for my niece,
who needed to attend the exam for entering colleges in Taiwan.

(三) Taiwan's Wildlife
  Taiwan is an island country, which has been famous for a variety of wild
animals and plants.  Formosan Landlocked Salmon (櫻花鉤吻鮭), for example,
is a special species of fish that can only be found in Taiwan.  The largest land
animal in Taiwan, Formosan Black Bear (台灣黑熊), is another Taiwan's only
species wildlife.  Besides these, Taiwan has 450 different species of birds and 
many other wildlife that are so rare and valuable that the government has 
enacted conservation laws to protect them.  

  According to a recent report in 2008 , some British wildlife tour specialists
recommend Taiwan a great place to go wildlife watching because
the island has one of the highest concentration of birds in the world,
six national parks, and some amazing landscapes to take in. Wildlife in Taiwan
now plays an important role not only as an indication for environmental
protection but also as an attraction to international tourists.

 Thanks to the effort which the government and people in Taiwan
have done to protect the wildlife during the past years, 
Taiwan has proven itself a terrific place to live and a fantastic place
 to visit.

Yes,  the salmon was from the ocean million years ago,  but some movement of the mountains from ocean stop the way back to ocean.  So called it Landlocked is so right!  As far as I know this kind of changing is rare in the world  that is why Landlocked Salmon now is protected by government.

Did some one so smart to name the salmon ' landlocked'.........

It is true,  they can never return back to ocean !  Till today I learned the English name which is so sad yet so true!  Thank you.

I didn't notice the word "landlocked" until you pointed it out.
I just searched the word on Google and got the name from some
government's website.
Is it true that they can never return back to sea ?
Anyway, thanks for your message.
