RD2A0819-2Team Monticola – The Israeli Nature Photography Association

We are all wildlife photographers and members of the Israeli Nature Photography Association. This is our second year taking part in the Champions of the Flyway race as we want to be part of the conservation efforts of nature and wildlife in Israel and around the world. We hope that more photographers from the association will participate in this wonderful project. We encourage all our followers to donate to help the Vultures of Africa!
