Joining forces to save Israel's coastline

The last few days have seen millions of tons of tar and polluting waste piling up on Israel’s coastline, from Zikim beach in the south all the way north to Rosh Hanikra, creating one of the worst ecological disasters ever to hit Israel.

This devastation has killed thousands of marine creatures, hundreds more are dying or seriously injured, and fragile Mediterranean eco-systems have been so badly hit that the rehabilitation of virtually all of Israel’s shoreline and beaches – now closed to the public for the foreseeable future – will be a lengthy process…

The Israel Nature and Heritage Foundation of America is working in the here-and-now on two projects to assist the emergency efforts:

1. Recruiting staff for the task force to clean the tar from the beaches from amongst those who lost their jobs due to Corona
2. Assisting at the Israel Sea Turtle Rescue Center treating the many sea turtles which have been badly injured due to the recent storms and consequent pollution from the oil spill

We are coordinating all our efforts with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority,  the Ministry of Environmental Protection, local governments and other environmental organizations in order to alleviate the terrible damage wrought on Israel’s beaches and coastal waters. As speedily as we would wish to improve the situation, we have to accept that it will not happen overnight, and these efforts will be ongoing for a considerable time.

The estimated cost to rehabilitate the eco-system is approximately US$25 million, and with your help and assistance at this crucial time, we will restore the coastal landscape, save the marine wildlife so badly hit by the oil and tar, and bring the beaches of Israel, enjoyed by all, back to life once more.

Any and every contribution received will be matched by the Israel Parks & Nature Reserves Authority – it’s our time to give!
Thank you.
