At the Desert Field Camp at Ramon Crater (Makhtesh Ramon), workshop participants will study the causes of craters in the desert landscape, as well as the unique flora and fauna endemic to the crater and how they adapt to extreme conditions. We will also investigate the ways in which humankind impacts and changes the desert ecosystem, and the balance needed between human needs and nature conservation. On this journey we will travel through fascinating landscapes and natural phenomena and incorporate field workshops.
