Israeli Mayors Demand: Give Wildlife Safe Right of Way

Mayors of Zichron Ya’akov, Binyamina revising plans for new industrial zones to give deer safe passage.

A sign posted near the entrance to the Ramat Hanadiv Nature Park near Zichron Ya’akov warns drivers that they’re approaching a crossing for roe deer. Inside the park, the deer are protected - but once they leave, they face the threat of cars. Just last week one that ventured out was hit by a vehicle.
