Israeli Environmental Issues

Many people only know about Israel from news reports of violence and terrorism. Despite these issues, Israel is a flourishing, modern democracy and they have many of the same concerns about the environment as people around the world. Zalul is an environmental activist group in Israel that works to protect the seas and rivers in Israel.

I just found the group online and I don't know too much about them. I am highlighting them to present that around the world small groups of citizens can get together and do something to help.

I realize that at times we might feel that our voice does not reach many and what we do is minor in the grand scheme of things. However, until we try we'll never know what our impact will be.

i agree that there are certain people in Israel that are helping to preserve environment. But only few people can't do anything. We should spread awareness about environment conservation to whole world.
Recently i came across a web site that provides specialized training on environment. That is www.aarcherinstitute.com. The Aarcher Institute of Environmental Training, Maryland. Education and training is the sole mission of the Aarcher Institute. The Aarcher Institute of Environmental Training is an independently operated training institute supported by Aarcher, Inc. a well-respected environmental assessment, planning, and management firm.
