Mr. Shomaly is 39 years old, community trekking tour guide graduated from Bethlehem University. He is renowned birds' expert in Palestine with a certificate from Hellenic wildlife hospital for rehabilitation of birds of prey (raptors) in Greece.

Shomaly loves birds and his main goal is to protect them and make sure they will have a safe journey on their migration from/to Palestine. Thus, he implements projects with the Hanns Seidel Foundation related to protection of nature and raising environmental awareness of local communities in Palestine. In addition to conserving specific birds such as common swifts and owls.

As a native of Bethlehem city, he works in making carvings "handcraft" on olive wood to be then purchased by souvenir shops.
