Volunteering in Israel

Desert Wildlife Program

About the Project

The mission of this nature reserve is to establish reproduction groups for populations of wild animals that are mentioned in the Bible but have disappeared from the landscape, as well as for other endangered desert animals. The reserve has three parts: a three-acre penned-in open area, where herds of herbivorous animals live in conditions similar to those in the wild; the Predators Centre, where reptiles, small desert animals, and large predators are on display; and the Desert Night Life Exhibition Hall, where night and day are reversed so that visitors to the reserve can observe nocturnal animals during their active hours.
