Duck tracking in Deer Valley
The Diving Duck program is continuing to thrive.
In the coming weeks and months we are planning on releasing more ducklings born at the Furgatch Marshland Aviary at the Zoo to the En Afek Nature Reserve.
The Reserve is located in the Akko valley, close to Kiryat Biyalik in Israel's north and preserves swampland and waterway sources the majority of which have been lost in Israel.
We are also eagerly anticipating the Nature Parks Authority report on the status of the population in Israel, due to be published in the coming weeks, summing up seven years of conservation activity.
Over the summer in the Deer Valley Reserve, close to the Zoo in Jerusalem, over thirty ducklings have been sighted during routine tracking sessions and hopefully this a good omen for the overall situation in Israel of this endangered species.
