An engineer by training, he became involved in plant protection after witnessing the tragedy of plant extinction, and became a fruit science blogger to bring fresh fruit knowledge to everyone.This is the story of “plant hunter” Yang Xiaoyang.Yang Xiaoyang has loved plants very much since he was a child. He can never forget anything he has seen.While studying in Singapore, he saw many plants he had never seen before, which sparked his interest in research, and the extinction of rare plants directly spurred his career transition.Yang xiaoyang turned from an engineer to a botanist halfway. With his love for plants, Yang eventually became an expert on the introduction and conservation of Southeast Asian plants hired by the South China Institute of Botany, Chinese Academy of Sciences. He also undertook the important work of fitting the Chinese name of Southeast Asian plants for the Chinese Natural Herbarium.However, being a botanist was not enough. Yang wanted to spread her love of plants to more people, so she turned to science popularization.But just popularizing rare plants and not many people buy it, how to do?At that time, he saw a foreign biography, Fruit Hunter, so he thought he could do the same, so he registered on a social media platform and started his first fruit science.In Yang xiaoyang’s video, we can not only see the small knowledge of picking fruit, but also know all kinds of strange fruits exist in the world.A golden fruit shaped like a “meteor hammer,” a shampoo fruit with a violet scent, and a samara yam that is 3,000 times sweeter than sucrose.Now, 32-year-old Yang has tasted more than 700 kinds of fruit, taken hundreds of thousands of photos of plants and seen more than 30,000 plants, becoming a fruit encyclopedia.As for the science popularization of knowledge, Yang Xiaoyang believes that the real science popularization knows no bounds. No matter who can watch the video, he will be satisfied as long as people can learn a little knowledge about fruit through his video.Now, his various popular science videos have become popular on the Internet, and the micro documentary about him, Fruit Hunter Yang Xiaoyang, has also been online. I believe that with his popular science work, Chinese plant science will become better and better, and more and more people will be willing to devote themselves to the cause of plant protection.What else would you like to say about “fruit hunter” Yang Xiaoyang?Feel free to leave your comments in the comments section.If you like my copywriting, please pay attention to me, like and forward for me, every encouragement from you will be my motivation to make better copywriting.
