Birds for peace in Israel
listen now | download audio

The Israeli Knesset is the only parliament in the world with a bird sanctuary. 
Birds migrating between Africa and Asia and Europe use the sanctuary to break 
their journey. One billion migratory birds fly over Israel, using thermals to 
avoid the Mediterranean Sea. Yossi Leshem says Israel has over 500 species of 
native birds -- a large number for such a small country.

The transcript of this program will be available by Monday afternoon .
