KKL-JNF to the Rescue: Help us Save a Life
Join KKL-JNF and today, for a better tomorrow
Israel’s Hula Valley lies on a major bird migration flyway; hundreds of millions of birds come through it twice a year on their way from Europe and Asia to Africa, and back. In this prime birdwatching site that is also home to various terrestrial wildlife species, Keren Kayemeth LeIsrael-Jewish National Fund (KKL-JNF) rescues and rehabilitates birds and mammals through the Agamon Wildlife Rehabilitation Center (AWRC).

AWRC, established in cooperation with Tel Hai Academic College, fulfills a critical role in preserving regional wildlife and the natural ecosystem. It is the only wildlife clinic in Northern Israel, and the only center in the entire country with facilities dedicated exclusively to helping wildlife reacclimatize to living back in the wild. It provides first-response, lifesaving treatment, care and rehabilitation to over 350 birds, mammals and reptiles a year.

AWRC facilities include a clinic, which was built with the support of JNF USA, three acclimatization compounds, and a nursery for baby birds. The nursery operates during the breeding season, which lasts from March to July, and is designed to serve young animals that have fallen from the nest or have been orphaned, and need close feeding and care until they become independent.
Cutting-edge rehabilitation methods from around the world are being implemented for the first time in Israel, right here. The ARWC has special enclosures that imitate the natural habitats of songbirds and birds of prey. These compounds allow the birds to practice flying and hunting skills in a monitored environment as they regain their strength and independence, significantly increasing their chances of survival back in nature.

Our dedicated specialists and volunteers work around the clock – setting the broken wing of an eagle, feeding a baby owl, or operating on a stone marten, to mention just a few examples. Devotion, love and compassion are abundant, but resources are low. To carry out this important mission, AWRC needs animal food (some is grown in-house); medical devices and equipment (from X-rays machines and scalpels to bandages and syringes); cages; netting; heating lamps and more.

Join KKL-JNF and the dedicated AWCR team in saving the precious lives of animals, birds and reptiles that are injured on their journey of survival. Your donation will help conserve wildlife in the region and maintain a sustainable natural ecosystem.
