HaMaarag Project

Hamaarag, Israel's National Nature Assessment Program operates Israel's National Terrestrial Biodiversity Assessment Program. The aim of the program is to monitor Israel’s biodiversity, thereby evaluating the state of nature and the significant changes taking place within it. The program monitors woody plants, birds, reptiles, arthropods and mammals throughout Israel, using field surveys and surveillance cameras. The monitoring of medium to large-size mammals occurs in diverse ecosystems ranging from Mediterranean maquis, and planted conifer forests, to hyper-arid desert. Based on the collected data in approximately 800 locations, we publish the State of Nature report, a biannual report that presents trends in the monitored indicators.
