Following calls from environmental organizations and members of Parliament for a halt to the construction of a military academy in Jordan's Bergesh Forest, the government has decided as of mid-September 2011 to maintain the region as a recreation area, thus preserving the forest and its century-old trees.

Just months after thousands of yellow and drum bass were found perished in the region, thousands of white bass on September 20, 2011 were discovered similarly lifeless in the Little Maumelle River of Arkansas, USA, where officials state that the cause was likely suffocation due to reduced oxygen levels from temperature change.
