Israel, Manitoba to sign science pact

The government of Manitoba and the Jewish National Fund will sign a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the joint advancement of wetland science, education and management on Monday at the Agmon-Hula Reserve, the JNF said Saturday night.
Manitoba’s Oak Hammock Marsh and Israel’s Agmon-Hula wetlands are geographically situated within important watersheds and transcontinental north-south bird migration flyways, according to the JNF.
The MoU will be signed by Christine Melnick, Manitoba’s water minister, and Efi Stenzler, JNF world chairman.
Manitoba signed another MoU last week with the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel to promote scientific study of bird migrations.
