    Accessibility statement

    We want everyone who visits the Ramat Hanadiv website to feel welcome and find the experience rewarding.

    What are we doing?

    To help us make the Ramat Hanadiv website a positive place for everyone, we've been using the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. These guidelines explain how to make web content more accessible for people with disabilities, and user friendly for everyone.

    The guidelines have three levels of accessibility (A, AA and AAA). We’ve chosen Level AA as the target for the Ramat Hanadiv website.

    How are we doing?

    We've worked hard on the Ramat Hanadiv website and believe we've achieved our goal of Level AA accessibility. We monitor the website regularly to maintain this, but if you do find any problems, please get in touch.

    This accessibility statement was generated on 7th August 2014 using the Accessibility Statement Generator.

Exhibit: Family Portraits

This exhibition brings you a composite portrait of the young generation of wild animals in our area. We hope you will be captivated by your encounter with them, and at the same time gain new awareness of the existential perils they face. The photographs on display are by Israeli photographers, lovers of nature and animals, whose art is their faith. 

Cubs and other baby animals fill all of us with feelings of life, continuity and optimism. The thought that the next generation will be able to enjoy baby animals, not only in pictures, gives us hope for the future.

However, unfortunately the future of wild animals in the Ramat Hanadiv region is not necessarily encouraging.
The Ramat Hanadiv Nature Park covers an area of approximately 500 hectares and is home to hundreds of animal species. The park is surrounded on almost all sides by residential neighborhoods and roads, and  experiences loss, isolation and reduction of animal populations. Small, isolated populations are exposed to the threat of extinction due to random and genetic causes. Just as for humans, reproduction within the family exposes animals to genetic diseases and defects in their future progeny.
The offspring of many species living in the Ramat Hanadiv region are in danger of decline and extinction due to their isolation and disconnection from the continuum of open landscapes.

Nevertheless, what can be done for them?
We, as humans, are responsible for creating the fragmented landscape and it is also within our power to take responsibility and change this situation.
How?
By preserving connectivity  between open landscapes for these animals, we will protect the habitat and thus ensure their continued existence. This connectivity will allow animals to move safely between natural landscapes, and give them the opportunity to breed with other populations.
Ramat Hanadiv is currently promoting two main actions in partnership with the neighboring councils:
-    Setting up an “ecological corridor” – a sufficiently wide strip of land that will connect habitats and facilitate free movement to animals active in the region.
-    Establishment of overpasses (over roads) that will form a continuation of the natural landscape and save animals from the dangers of crossing busy roads.

The exhibit will be on view from 3 March till August 2017. Entrance is free; come and see it soon!
