The Persian donkey is a species of deer that became extinct from the country due to hunting. Over the years, more than 200 individuals have been released in the Nahal Sorek Nature Reserve in the Judean Hills, which are monitored in the field by the park's nature conservation coordinator using cameras. The fact that the population in the reserve is able to multiply on its own is a great sign of the success of the reclamation project.
