About Zalul

Zalul Environmental Association is an Israeli environmental NGO founded in 1999 with the goal protecting the seas and rivers of Israel through conservation, activism, research, awareness-raising and education. For the past nine years Zalul has been initiating local and national campaigns that target unchallenged municipalities, corporations and the national government on their negligence and destruction of Israel’s most precious resource- water.

Zalul’s battles for environmental protection are waged on a few fronts, ensuring their effectiveness and concrete gains in the environmental field: community and grassroots, general public awareness, legal and legislative levels. Each campaign stems from a public need that is translated into an effective effort combining all these efforts. Zalul utilizes professional research, involves the overall public through activism and publicity, targets the relevant bodies (governmental agencies, private sector, factories, etc.) and lobbies for policy and legislative change.

The Zalul team is comprised of professionals from various fields: advocacy, academia, environmental specialists, lawyers, public relations experts, lobbyists, volunteers and concerned citizens. Although a small group, the Zalul teams’ potency lies in devoting their expertise in diverse fields for environmental change in Israel.

Donate to Zalul and show your support for clean water in Israel’s streams, rivers, and seas.

    Can anybody help me. I am a resident of Omer and am organizing a meeting for all the residents regarding Water conservation/reuse. I need to get in touch with experts/companies who would be willing to come to Omer and tell people what is available (taps, shower heads, water saving washing machines/dish washers, greywater recycling units/ gardening etc). After giving the information to people I envisage collectinf details of people interested in upgrading their homes and this list would go to companies interested. They would check each home and give a recommendation as to what devices would be suitable, costs savings etc. This way the conference would not just be an information serice but actually reduce water waste/ increase reuse. Compaines would win, Omer residents would win and the country would win!
    So if anybody thinks they would be suitable please let me know

      Thank you for the support! If you are interested in Zalul, you might also be interested in Heal the Bay, based out of Southern California, and the Surfrider Foundation, which now has branches all over the world.
