Imad Telhami, business and social entrepreneur and chairman and founder of Babcom Centers, visited the Butterfly Lake Park at the Klil factory in Carmiel.
Imad is a partner with Hemi Peres and Erel Margalit in the investment fund and incubator Takwin (“Genesis” in Arabic), which is intended to encourage entrepreneurs from the Arab sector.
The park is an open compound, and not a closed greenhouse, to allow butterflies in the area to stay and reproduce in the park. The park includes natural biotopes including open woodland, shrubs and perennials and annuals, expanses of wildflowers and herbs, tailored to the needs of the butterflies in the area.
There are about 42 species of butterflies in the park area (Carmiel Valley).
Tzuri Daboosh, chairman of Klil: "Klil recently launched the Butterfly Park complex, which covers an area of 15 dunams with an investment of about NIS 3 million. The establishment of the park is the fulfillment of the company's vision with a commitment not only to preserve nature but also to give back to nature."
"The butterfly symbolizes the values of Klil... beauty, lightness, positivity, which is reminiscent of the spirit of the company in Klil products."Fredy Aboukrat
