Hai Bar covers about 1,500 acres in the heart of Little Switzerland, which is located in Mount Carmel. Established by the late Uri Tzion and Gen. Avraham Yoffe in the 1960s, Hai Bar is a public organization whose goal is to restore Israel‘s wildlife. On Mount Carmel alone there existed a world of living things that became extinct due to hunting, deforestation and poisoning. Hai Bar’s goal is to protect the status quo and to reintroduce species that have become extinct in Israel. This is a multi-stage process; first the animals are encouraged to reproduce (a reproductive nucleus), this is followed by acclimatization and lastly the animals are released in open spaces. Visitors to Hai Bar can enjoy the exciting details of this mission and see fascinating wildlife such as Armenian wild sheep, falcons, Persian fallow deer, roe deer, vultures and others. There are guided tours in Hebrew on Saturdays at Hai Bar at 10:00, 12:00 and 14:00.
address: Hai Bar is located 300 meters south of the entrance to the University of Haifa campus, on the Haifa-Isfiya road at the turnoff opposite Ha’arba’im Grove.
Open Hours: Saturdays only 8:00-16:00

Hello reader. My name is Charlotte Noris and I am sure that you will definitely enjoy my blog. Do you know why? All because on the pages you will see bright and colorful photos, as well as useful information. My husband and I are freelancers, so we can travel at any time of the year.
For myself, I most often plan tours in advance, but it also happens that the trip turns out to be spontaneous when I see an interesting place and a nice price. At the age of 35, I have visited more than 30 countries and do not plan to stop there. I want to visit all continents and the most secret corners of our planet.
