Jordan: Saving a Dying Sea

Scientists say the Dead Sea could evaporate into salty puddles in 50 years. A group called Wild Jordan is raising awareness with projects like Mujib Chalets. The 15-room hotel on a Dead Sea promontory is the newest of six eco-accommodations operated by the group; each one is located in a nature reserve. All follow the same ethos: local food and water-efficient design. (Feynan Eco-Lodge for example, only uses water from a nearby spring.) on
