Mujib - Jordan

Mujib, Jordan, is part of the Dead Sea basin and Jordan Rift Valley landscape, extending along the eastern shores of the Dead Sea. The spectacular landscape of the area includes the lowest terrestrial point on earth (420 m below sea level). Human activities have played a certain role in shaping many of the reserve’s habitats, including agriculture, fishing, hunting, grazing, quarrying in small areas at the reserve’s boundaries, small scale settlements, wood cutting for fuel and collection of herbal and medicinal plants. The area has more than 90 rare plant species at the national level, one fish species endemic to the Dead Sea Basin and 24 species of mammals of national, regional and global conservation importance.
