SHRINKING & DISAPPEARING

DeaD SEA

The Dead Sea is a masterwork of nature in all aspects; geological, ecological, historical. The lowest place on earth and one of the saltiest bodies of water!

Its scenery is like nowhere else on earth- a place of relaxation for body and soul. A truly magical place drawing tourists of all kinds; religious, hikers, scientists, nature lovers, cure seekers due to its well-known therapeutic virtues, and so much more. The three major faiths arose along its shores and thus its spiritual importance to humanity. Three communities share this stretch of land - Jordanians, Israelis and Palestinians.

 

 

And now it’s dying….

The Dead Sea water level has fallen more than 25 meters during the past 30 years due to irresponsible and conflict-ridden "water-grabbing" and unsustainable water management. We’ve gathered hereby at this magnificent Sea, to express our gratitude and love, cry out, and help in efforts to bring it back to life.
