Nature and Nature Lovers in Palestine

It’s easy to be a birder in Philadelphia, but what about Bethlehem (not the one near Allentown) or the Gaza Strip? Learn about nature and nature loving under occupation, and hear about¬†two organizations training citizen scientists, educating children about nature, and advancing environmental preservation where it isn’t quite as easy. We speak with Mazin Qumsiyeh of the Palestine Museum of Natural History and Imad Atrash of the Palestine Wildlife Society¬†about their programming and the wildlife of Palestine (like lesser kestrels on the walls of Jerusalem). Tony and Billy reflect on how social injustice manifests in how we experience nature, from Palestine to West Philadelphia.
