Project Goal

Establish a sanctuary along the world’s greatest migratory bird highway

Location: Israel

"People are not so opposed to bird sanctuaries as they once were. That is encouraging.”

In a tiny outpost at the desert's edge, a courageous Israeli ornithologist is fighting to keep intact one of nature's wonders — the world's greatest migratory bird highway.

The work of Reuven Yosef, who was chosen as an Associate Laureate in 2000, has inspired the development of bird sanctuaries around the world.
