A group of 70 common earthworms have been married in an unusual and elaborate wedding ceremony.
The event was organised by Taiwanese activists at Takang Park in Tainan city as part of efforts to raise awareness for environmental issues and soil erosion. A traditional wedding ceremony was carried out which saw the worms being married with the soil in the park after arriving within a wedding sedan draped in red cloth.
"The ceremony was implemented exactly according to traditional Taiwanese customs," said group leader Huang Sen-nan. "We want to raise public awareness about the need to protect the land where we live."
"Soil erosion - which can contribute to landslides during typhoons - is one of Taiwan's main environmental problems."
