Great Big Story
Published on 25 Sep 2018
Welcome to picturesque North Ronaldsay. This remote island, located way, way north in Scotland, is home to 50 people and some very special sheep. In order to free up grassland for cattle, humans in the early-19th century confined the flock, found nowhere else on Earth, to the shore. This left the sheep with no choice but to chow down on seaweed, making them one of only two animals able to survive on the slippery stuff. Come have a stroll (and a snack?) with these new hooven friends and the humans who love them.
