About the Center

Using largely volunteer efforts and local donations, the Palestine Institute for Biodiversity and Sustainability (PIBS) and its offspring, the Palestine Museum of Natural History (PMNH) and ecological botanical gardens at Bethlehem University were started in 2014. PMNH opened to the public in 2017 and its cultural heritage exhibit (first of its kind in quality in our region) opened April 2019.  Focusing on research, education and conservation, PIBS/PMNH already benefitted tens of thousands of people as well as our environment.

We welcome volunteers local and international and we always have this congenial atmosphere with people of various backgrounds enjoy learning and working together. We provide room and board to volunteers. Join us. To learn more see this short video: https://youtu.be/BPhFLOsEIM0 and visit our webpage https://palestinenature.org
