Land Resources

Natural resources such as oil, gas, minerals and timber are expected to continue to play a significant role in abundant economies, as demand from rapidly growing economies increases, and as supplies of non-renewable resources decline and renewable resource harvests approach maximum sustained yield levels.

The Ecological Corridor

Ramat Tsevaim-Gilboa-Harod

An ecological corridor is a unique strip of land in possession of particular features (different to those of its surroundings) that forms a link between areas sufficiently large to enable the existence of various kinds of wildlife in their natural habitats which are otherwise disconnected. Ecological corridors connect nature reserves with areas of ecological importance, enabling species to move between them.
