What do we know about the population of this gentle, shy animal? How many gazelles are there at Ramat Hanadiv? What regulates the size of their population? What is the role of scent stations? And who is the gazelle with the collar that we see here sometimes? During the lecture we’ll become familiar with the gazelle population in the Park and the methods that have been used to study them – for nearly 30 years.
