Endagered species being cared for in jordan

It was created in the year 1975 by the RSCN as a breeding center for endangered animals. It occupies a space of ​​over 22 square km.It is the oldest and most important center for animal conservation and in the country of Jordan. It is within the Natural Reserve of al-Azraq which is home to some of the rarest species in the Middle East, including the Arabian Oryx. we can also see ostriches, wild asses and gazelles. They work with animals in an environment free from the dangers that threaten the destruction of their habitat. Shawmari reserve is home to a wide variety of desert plants, including Atriplex, a natural food source for wildlife. The fee of admission was $ 3 DJ with a tour . You can pay in the Tourist Information Center close to the park, which also has a small craft store, maps and more. First you visit a visitor center with an interactive museum that guides you with all the explanations and photos. Close to the visitor center there is a picnic area and a playground with swings for kids. After a short walk, you will reach the lookout tower, with 4 floors, is a great place to observe fauna. The breeding area has become, almost inadvertently, a makeshift zoo that is varied and interesting. There is also the possibility of a tour by jeep, supervised by the RSCN, ie, reservation required for mini-safari plan, the best way to see the conservation work is done on the reservation. To me he was included in the tour of "Desert Castles", but because I asked for it. The photos were provided by Jordan Tourism: Http :/ / sp.Visitjordan.Com /
