Interior Department Partners with Israel

New program creates a framework for conservation partnership.

The Interior Department announced a new cooperative program between them and the nation of Israel’s equivalent – the Nature and Parks Authority. The new program would promote communication about preserving biodiversity, protected areas, and historical and cultural points of interest. The framework will allow for combatting wildlife trafficking and protecting important ecosystems.

Secretary Bernhardt expressed his support of the partnership saying, “I applaud Director General Goldstein’s leadership in expanding Israel’s system of parks and nature reserves, and I look forward to strengthening our collaboration with the Israel Nature and Parks Authority.” The Israel Nature and Parks Authority has oversight of over 25% of the country’s land.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For Secretary Bernhart to be used by God to preserve God’s creation
  • That the partnership between Israel and the Interior Department would bring God glory.
  • For the Interior Department to be given the resources it needs to carry out the good work of preservation
