A powerful and inspiring landscape, the Dead Sea overwhelms our senses through its majestic beauty.
The Dead Sea is threatened by an environmental disaster.
The continual decline of the water level is creating an ecological imbalance on both land and sea that will destroy natural habitats and cause the loss of this unique precious resource. The Dead Sea is an eco-system housing both natural and historic treasures, important to those who love to visit, and to the entire world.
SAVE OUR SEA is a small, volunteer-based awareness organization with an ambitious non-political mission dedicated to preserving, protecting and restoring the Dead Sea for future generations.
By showing the world how much we care we can make things happen.
Contact your family, friends, the local media, your representative and let them know how much you care about this precious natural wonder.
The future of Dead Sea is in immediate danger. Please, don't stand by and allow it to die.
Spencer Tunick has decided to return to Israel on September 14th in his continued quest to help Save the Dead Sea from disappearing. He is joining forces with the grassroots environmental group Save Our Sea (www.saveoursea.org.il) and will be attending their annual Dead Sea Float. There is a Facebook invite with more details at: https://www.facebook.com/events/476815572334048/
I will post more information as it becomes available. So far I have seen 2 related articles in the Israeli media today.
Save Our Sea has a very active Facebook Group, to view a selection of recent posts click the image above.

"The length of the lake is 67 miles, measured from Zoar in Arabia, the width is 17. Next to it lies the land of Sodom, once so rich in crops and in the wealth of its cities, but now dust and ashes." - Josephus Flavius - The Jewish War
