The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI) will put up stands around the country to collect signatures on a petition against a bill by Member of Knesset Yisrael Hasson (Kadima) to transfer management and operation of the nation's 120 national parks from the Nature and National Parks Authority to private bodies.

The stands will be set up in the Almog Junction, Ben Shemen Forest, Eilat, Golan Heights, Haifa, Jerusalem, Jerusalem Hills, Machanayim Junction, Modi'in, Tel Aviv, Tzemach Junction, and the Western Galilee, among other other places.
