Eco-logic The Jordan River Region: A Natural Refuge Produced by Warfare

For years the southern Jordan River region has been a closed military zone. The local wildlife has only benefited from this, but will this tranquility continue?

Areas in which humans have caused great damage and even spilled blood can, over time, become sanctuaries for nature. Precisely in places that warring peoples have closed off, wild animals can find a relatively quiet and protected shelter. Such has been the fate of the territories along the southern Jordan River that to this day are still designated closed military zones.
