Hi Eyal,

Congrats on the new website, seems there is a great potential to become a leading site for the Israeli nature. I would be happy to know about it more (aims ect).

Surely you are welcome to give updates about your site here as well and if I can offer any help I would do so gladly.

About the Odonata page, I would like to ask on what  did you compile the checklist. is it "Fauna Palaestina", "Odonata of the Mediterranean and North Africa" or another source?.

I ask since it includes very specific data so I must say good job!

 If you need extracts from "Fauna Palaestina - Odonata"  let me know, I have it.

I don't have yet the "Odonata of the Mediterranean and North Africa" but I plan to get it soon

since most probably it is the most recent work on our area.

Thank you for posting here and hope you will post again. I will registered to your site and will post when it will be relevant to my field of work.

Warm regards,

Hi Oz,


Thank you for your warm welcome!

The site was originally dedicated for road killreports (it sounds weird, I know), wildlife and field reports added later. It is aim to raise public awareness for some nature conservation issues. The Odonata checklist was written by Itai Shani, I think it is based on Fauna Palaestina as well as on his findings, but I suggest asking him directly.

We will be most happy and grateful for your involvement; I have some photos of unidentified Libellulidae, we would like to add distribution maps and more –

any kind of help will be highly appreciated.
