Jordan River Valley
وادي نهر الأردن
The combination of water from the Jordan River, fertile soils, and low-elevation make the Jordan River Valley a natural greenhouse, ideal for both wild and cultivated vegetation. It is also an ideal habitat for pollinators and leaf-eating invertebrates, which in turn attract larger insectivores and carnivores, including the European otter.
Known as Ghor, the Jordan River Valley extends southwards from the Yarmouk River to the Dead Sea.
