Nature violators, beware! Fines up by 10%

The Nature and Parks Authority has raised its fines for harming nature by 10 percent, it said Sunday. The increase, which went into effect April 13, also applies to the maximum amount a court can fine violators. For instance, park rangers will hand out fines of NIS 730 instead of NIS 660 and the fine for illegal hunting will rise to NIS 150,600 from NIS 134,600.
