Welcome to Biodiversity East

Welcome to a site that may bring you closer to nature. Especially the nature of one of Earth's richest biological crossroads: the Middle East, Eastern Europe, Africa, and the Mediterranean. There are great natural treasures here that need protection and understanding.

Through this initiative, local and visiting naturalists and scientists strive to create networks that promote natural history and conservation actions.
It is our privilege and pleasure to work united for nature across borders.  

Biodiversity East is an environmental NGO that promotes conservation-relevant scientific work, awareness and education, policy development and sound ecotourism through not-for-profit work.
