Join us in supporting Australian wildlife & nature recovery efforts AND ensuring the ongoing sustainability of Israel’s South
Right now, Australia is being ravaged by the most devastating and unprecedented bushﬁre season, with an estimated 10.7 million hectares of Australian land burnt and 1.25 billion animals killed.
This Green Sunday, 50% of funds raised will be directed to supporting wildlife and nature recovery efforts through the JNF & WWF Restoration Support Program.
A staged recovery and restoration effort will involve:
- Restoring the ecological structure and function of core areas across Eastern Australia
- Protecting and enhancing forest corridors to enable movement and recovery of koalas and other native animals
- Strengthening the health and value of habitat in unburnt regions whilst helping to protect these areas from future fire events
The other 50% of funds raised through our Green Sunday campaign will be dedicated to completing the outdoor educational classroom at Merchav Am.
Situated by the community centre and bus stop, the outdoor classroom area is almost complete, thanks to the generous support of the Perth community.
This Green Sunday we will work together to fit-out the outdoor classroom with a shaded, wooden stage, as well as additional seating and greening of the area. This natural continuation of the outdoor classroom will provide an opportunity for learning, socialising, and entertainment for over 500 Merchav Am residents, youth movements, surrounding communities, and many group tours that travel through the Negev region each year.
By helping to green and develop an outdoor education area, our community has an important role to play in creating a sustainable future for Merchav Am and Israel.
Please support these two important projects by donating online or via your pledge card received in the mail. Alternatively, if you would prefer to donate over the phone, our youth volunteers will be calling on Sunday 9th February 2020.
