Arava Salt Flats Endangered by Development
The salt flats in Arava and Sodom are in danger of completely disappearing. The threat to these important habitats is the increased development activity. The Eilat salt flats are already destroyed. Salt flats are a very sensitive habitat for a variety of plants and animals that require very specific salinity conditions to live. SPNI has released a report detailing what the threats are to these important ecosystems and recommendations on how to protect them.
