Palestine Institute of Biodiversity and Sustainability

The museum and institute are dynamic and growing in areas of research, education and conservation. We started with our own funding (donated by Jessie and Mazin Qumsiyeh) for initial work in the first three years and then started to get support from many people (see donations page).
