Birds and Salt – A New Birding Center at the Dead Sea

Every bounce and autumn the association of the Asleep Sea deathwatch up to the complete of wings of bisected a billion birds who drift arctic over the Abundant Syrian – African Valley, which is navaled by the Asleep Sea.

The Large birds, who generally acreage in clandestine courtyards aswell blow on the banks of this abundant acrid basin and stop actuality to blow and oases, afterwards the backbreaking adventure over the deserts, in flight from Africa to Europe and back.

The Asleep Sea and Judean Arid are the a lot of important birding areas in the area, and accumulation a all-inclusive and affluent touchdown abject for the flocks of birds. This is an acute arid arena with assorted oases, absorbing cliffs, arced canyons, Highlands and acute low lands.

The breadth has a advanced ambit of habitats for birds, qualitative observations on the abnormality of afoot birds that accommodate analysis and the assorted habitats and conservation, and deepening beastly ties to Industry and Environment.

These altitude accomplish the Asleep Sea and Judean Arid a altered centermost for research, apprenticeship and tourism, decidedly of afoot birds and arid bird watching.

A new Interdisciplinary abstraction Centermost is now planned by several Asleep Sea and the abundant breach analysis foundations.

The Asleep Sea breadth in its assorted aspects has abundant accent of regional, civic and all-embracing affairs. The Asleep Sea and its ambience are a altered phenomenon: Here, there is a attenuate aggregate of altered altitude and acute bounded aspects – physical, aspects of geology, climate, animals, plants, mineral, cultural ancestry and more. The breadth is allotment of the Abundant Divide (Great Breach Valley – African) – the cradle of civilization, and the longest geological abnormality – 07,20 km beyond 22 countries.

“The Asleep Sea Analysis Centermost for the Abundant Breach Valley is advised to be the focus of a altered multidisciplinary research, which examines, in an integrative, assorted aspects of absolute adored relations amid them, and the sea ambiance – The Asleep Sea rift, in adjustment to accept and bottle the atypical accustomed resource, a address that will abound development and abundance of the region.

The Centermost is based on a cooperation amid the two capital factors: R & D of the Asleep Sea (Dead Sea Institute of Research, development and learning) science centermost forth with the Asleep Sea and the Arava, which operates as allotment of a bounded R & D s Ministry of Science and sponsored by an bookish at the University of the Negev, in cooperation with Tel Aviv University, Asleep Sea Analysis Centermost and assorted departments at the university.

Project aid and added partners: the Bounded Council for the Tamar, the Negev and Galilee Development Ministry, Ministry of Science and Attributes Protection Society.

Meanwhile, we are aswell because the enactment of a accessory academy in Ein Gedi Acreage School, which will serve as a company centermost and observatory, as able-bodied as geophysical altitude center, with an accent on apple sciences, led by Prof. Zvi Ben – Avraham.

Ein Gedi Acreage Academy is anchored arctic of the David river assets overlooking the assets and the Asleep Sea, and is an ideal angle point for bird clearing research, as able-bodied as the abundant rift.

The center, amid at Ein Gedi Acreage Academy and led by Dr. Yossi Leshem, is accepted to be allotment of a civic arrangement of birding centers with 15 stations, and focus in research, educational and attention of birds as able-bodied as growth, and accessible absolute admission with parallels at the Palestinian Authority in Jericho and Wadi Mujib Jib in Jordan. The centermost should aswell focus on development of the clearing ascertainment by application digital transmitters and enabling visitors to chase the clearing from Europe and Asia through the Abundant Breach to South Africa.

The breadth is aswell home to abounding birds and animals who reside actuality permanently, including the Arabian babbler bird song (scientific name: Turdoides squamiceps). Their character is the accumulation activity which is maintained throughout the year, including the exact aforementioned accumulation of birds who assure their territory.

Social behavior of a citizenry of babblers has been advised back the aboriginal 70s, and analysis led to the analysis of the “handicap principle,” which explains evolutionary development of altruism and added amusing phenomena in animals and man: during the day, babblers bouncer the accumulation from a top ascertainment point with macho and changeable leaders who assets for the longest time (handicap principle). The absolute accumulation is bringing up babies, even not the biological parents. In abounding cases (unless this accumulation has alone one changeable or male), it is absurd to apperceive for abiding who the biological parents are.

This behavior resembles the activity of groups about the Asleep Sea for ages: the Judean Arid camp members, accepted as the Essenes lived at Qumran were accepting a activity of administration as a group, and a lot of settlements in the about today are either kibbutzim or accommodating unions. This accommodating behavior which is adequate in the present, may be the aftereffect of the acrid concrete altitude of the arid for those who wish to reside in it.

Bird campanology activities action consistently for the abiding ecology of the birds, including abounding brand of arid birds like eagles, falcons and more.

Local association are alive to save the attributes and the environment, attention bulb and beastly population, analysis and abstracts collection, Development and advance of blooming activities, deepening the accord of man and nature, captivation of the bounded citizenry ambler environmental-related activities, and apprenticeship of the adolescent bearing for adulation of acreage and nature, through appropriate projects such as wetlands activity alive about AHAVA cosmetics branch in the Bounded Council Asleep Sea Scrolls.

AHAVA, the alone cosmetics bulb begin in its accustomed ambiance – the asleep sea, works to bare the abstruse impacts of minerals on the skin. Consistent accurate admission that led to the AHAVA unparalleled ability in the field, culminating in an all-embracing arrangement development and advancing bookish research.

Loyal advocates of AHAVA aesthetics assure the region’s adorableness and assets inherent in it, branch managers accomplished admiring relationships and affair to the Asleep Sea, which forth its shores they plan and live.

The company’s activities based on ecology and attention apropos the aerial antithesis of authentic elements in the Asleep Sea. Crystalline mineral collection, the minerals of Asleep Sea mud and arid plants growing in the ablaze air of this bewitched region, is in charge: the bulb takes alone the all-important to acceptance attributes to furnish effortlessly.

Production processes are not acquainted of the needs of ecology pollutants. The bulb is not experimenting on animals, and articles are arranged handset, the recyclable bottles and jars.

The plant’s area on the alluvial fan of Nahal degrees Vahccon, forth the admission alley to Kibbutz Mitzpe Shalem, Vgerevitadtibi topographical advantages of the avant-garde activity for decay baptize ablution application appropriate vegetation.

The Ablution action is agitated out according to the attempt of wetlands (wet lends) in which the baptize are casual through a few basins of baptize – anniversary with altered capacity plants that get rid of decay as able-bodied as mosquito smells evolution effects.

Custom automotive actinic plants and decay baptize of the region’s atmospheric conditions.
