Professor Yossi Leshem
“Migrating Birds Know No Boundaries”
The noted Israeli ornithologist outlines a fascinating case study in Middle East cooperation, as Israelis, Palestinians and Jordanian farmers, naturalists a– even former Army Generals – work together on various projects, including migratory bird protection, to help spread organic farming techniques across borders.
Yossi Leshem lectures in the Department of zoology of Tel Aviv University. Formerly the director general of the society for the protection of nature in Israel (SPNI), he is establishing the International Center for the study of Bird Migration at Latrun.
