Bird Migrations Know No Boundaries
Lecture and Illustration by Imad Atrash, Executive Director of the Palestine Wildlife Society
Suggested Contribution: $10 General Admission | $5 Students & Seniors
Doors open at 6:30pm
Imad Atrash, Founder and Executive Director of the Palestine Wildlife Society (PWLS), will discuss the importance of sustainable development, conservation and enhancement of biodiversity and wildlife in Palestine. Thinking globally and acting locally, the Society was established to educate and aware Palestinians to identify and to know the characteristics of migratory birds and native species and understand the habitat they need to survive and thrive.
Despite of the Israeli-Palestinan conflict, Atrash argues that the speed of environmental degradation is alarming, thus the ecosystem should not be relegated to the back burner. Consequently, Palestinians like every community on earth has to nurture its lands and wildlife now otherwise it may be too late.
