Field visited with Mazin and Jessie
One year previous to my visit here, this wildlife refuge thrived with multiple species of insects and small animals and beautiful plants, shrubs and trees. Biologist Mazin Qumseyah repeatedly visited this site over the years because he could gather many specimens. However, when I visited the field with Mazin, he was shocked at the low level of water in the creek. He attributed the lack of water to the increase in settlements on the hills above the wildlife refuge, the evidence of which was the presence of PVC pipe in the creek taking water uphill.
