The encounter between man and nature poses special challenges for wildlife. Factors such as loss of habitats and sources of food due to the incursion of construction, fences, and roads; large-scale agriculture and the use of pesticides; power lines; hunting; and air and noise pollution are among the threats to wildlife.
The exhibition, titled "Animal Spirit", documents the work of the veterinary clinic and acclimation center for injured wildlife
in the heart of the Hula Valley, a project made possible by JNF USA
The exhibition was produced by the KKL-JNF Photo Archive
in Jerusalem, which houses more than 1,500,000 photographs, from the beginning of the 20th century to the present day.
