Bird Watching

Bird Watching

Palestine is considered to be one of the most important places for monitoring bird migration in the world; this is due to its geographical location that is situated on the western boundaries of the Asian continent directly on the southeastern coast of the Mediterranean Sea, and on the eastern boundaries of Africa. This geographical location places Palestine at the juncture of the European, Asian, and African continent.

Thirteen sites have been identified as important areas for conservation. These areas include Palestinian Coast, Jerusalem Mountains, Eastern Slopes and theJordan Valley differing in climate and bio-geographical location. The areas also vary from semi natural, urban and rural areas. Many of which is rich agricultural land with high agro-Biodiversity.
