The Natural History Collections constitute a multi-disciplinary project at Tel Aviv University, with the participation of members of the Departments of Zoology and Plant Sciences of the George S. Wise Faculty of Life Sciences, and the Departments of Anatomy and Anthropology of the Sackler School of Medicine.
Our collections and staff also provide support for the research of many agricultural, environmental, ecological, evolutionary, and conservation scientists in various institutions of higher education in Israel and abroad as well as government ministries in Israel.
We take pride in our involvement in nature and environmental conservation and work hard to uphold a tradition of contributing to society based on our expertise in the study of nature, as well as in many other significant ways. Many members are very active in conservation and monitoring projects and on the boards of public and environmental organizations. Our report lists some of these activities.
