Hello Diving Duck supporters!

At the beginning of 2015, it’s fitting to look back at our achievements since the start of this important conservation program:

  • 32 Diving Ducks were released into the wild in 2013
  • 26 individuals were released into the wild in 2014
  • 33 ducklings hatched at our incubation center in 2014
  • Ducks were released in both the north and south of Israel (in the Hula Valley, Enot Gibbeton and Tsora Valley nature reserves)

As we pointed out previously, breeding and reintroducing the species to the wild must be done in tandem with habitat conservation and community education. This is why we make a point of involving our community as much as possible when we release individuals into the wild. We know that nothing can beat the educational and emotional impact of seeing these beautiful birds fly to freedom in their natural habitat. We recently did this again when releasing some ducks at the Enot Gibbeton Nature Reserve and the response from the public was phenomenal.

Thank you all so much for helping us to inspire our community to protect species and habitats. The impact of these efforts cannot be overstated especially as these local efforts affect the status of a migratory species which is vulnerable across its entire range – a seemingly small local conservation program can end up having a large global impact.

Warm Regards,

Nicole and the Team at the Jerusalem Biblical Zoo
