Dead Sea Guardians

Dead Sea Guardians

The Dead Sea, shared by Israelis, Jordanians and Palestinians, is a unique salt-lake known for its exceptional geographical, biological, and historical value, and is the lowest point on Earth. Tragically, the Dead Sea is drying up, causing widespread damage, including huge sinkholes, abandoned beaches and collapsing roads. If action is not taken soon, very little of the Sea will remain. To save it, the surrounding countries must work together. Three people – a Jordanian, an Israeli and a Palestinian - feel they cannot just stand by and do nothing. They decide on a heroic act: an unprecedented and dangerous swim across the Dead Sea, from Jordan to Israel, which will draw the world’s attention to the Sea’s plight.
