    Website accessibility:

    Ramat Hanadiv invests effort and resources to make the organization’s website accessible so that disabled people will also be able to enjoy it.

    Restrictions to accessibility:

    As a general rule, all of the website’s pages were built to meet level AA conformance to web content accessibility. Nevertheless, despite our efforts to make all of the website’s pages accessible, it is possible that some parts of the site are still inaccessible. We note that a number of pages contain external components that are beyond our control and inaccessible. Therefore, the following pages do not meet the accessibility standard:

Fauna

Fauna
 Along with projects of reintroduction and restocking of various species it is now once again possible to find Egyptian mongoose, Eurasian badger, wild boar and roe deer alongside mountain gazelle, the former last seen in the early 1900s. The numbers of Indian crested porcupine have soared in the last ten years following a campaign of restocking that followed illegal hunting which took place in the mid to late 1990s and all but eradicated the species from the area. Since then, hunting has been stopped entirely through increasing awareness and improved patrols.
 
The park supports six species of carnivorous mammals and a host of both nocturnal and diurnal birds of prey with five species of each nesting in the Park. Ramat Hanadiv is an oasis for persecuted wildlife, and animals which are notoriously hard to observe in other parts of the country can easily be viewed in the area. 
 
Ramat Hanadiv is also uniquely placed as a 'jump zone' for large migrating birds. This is most impressive in the autumn migration as the Park represents the last staging post on which to catch good thermal air currents before reaching the Sinai Peninsula. As a result, thousands of birds pass over our skies each year. The Park also boasts a quantity of other wildlife with 26 mammal species, 43 bird species, 26 species of reptiles, 3 amphibian, 12 snail, 45 butterfly and 115 spider species having thus far been catalogued. Research is ongoing and several groups have still to be quantified.
 
Ramat Hanadiv is increasingly subject to encroachment as both surrounding settlements and infrastructure threaten to sever existing corridors connecting the Park to the world around it. These developments also bring wildlife into direct conflict with man whether through agricultural damage or simply human apprehension of large wildlife roaming their neighbourhoods. We endeavour to monitor the populations of certain indicator species and aim to find workable solutions to human-wildlife conflicts wherever possible.
