The weather was even a little chilly for the little birds too!

Jan. 16 – The sun was shining, but temperatures were still chilly on our last day in Eilat. Early in the morning CAARI visited Eilat’s bird sanctuary. We learned about the bird migration and the Eilat environment. All of us were proud of CAARI’s contribution to the area 7 years ago – CAARI planted trees to help rebuild the area. Arnold Stark was there at the time and helped dig the holes and plant over 500 trees “We can’t believe that the little samplings that we planted are now over 6 feet tall. It is wonderful to see that our efforts are so appreciated – and we have made a difference for the wild life and environment in the Eilat area,” said Stark. From there, the group went to the Hai Bar Nature Reserve and drove through the reserve enjoying the mating dance of the ostrich! They put on quite a show for us! Tomorrow we leave for Tel Aviv – here’s hoping that the weather warms up!
