The Tamers of Sands of the Gobi Desert | SLICE EARTH
Minquin is an oasis town wedged between two Chinese deserts: Badain Jaran and Tengger. A natural barrier between the two, which must be preserved at all costs.
Today, this boundary is disappearing and the sand is rushing into a breach: the Mouth of the Tiger. If the immense masses of sand from these two deserts were to merge, the flow of sand falling on Beijing would increase significantly, and the city would pay dearly.
An army of farmers is waging a war against the sand in an attempt to put the brakes on the desert.

民勤是夾在中國兩大沙漠(巴丹吉林沙漠和騰格里沙漠)之間的綠洲小鎮,它是兩片沙漠之間的天然屏障,必須不惜一切代價加以保護。
如今,這道屏障正在消失,風沙正沖向一個缺口:老虎嘴。如果來自這兩個沙漠的大量沙子匯合在一起,落在北京的沙流量將大大增加,北京將付出沉重的代價。
一支由農民組成的大軍正在向風沙開戰,試圖為沙漠剎車。
