What is Mahmiyat.ps?

Mahmiyat.ps is the first web presence for the Palestinian nature reserves launched in 2016. The website was implemented by the Hanns Seidel Foundation with supervision of the Palestinian Environment Quality Authority. It aims at raising environmental awareness among the Palestinian Society about the nature reserves in the West bank and Gaza strip by providing information about the reserves and nearby historical and cultural sites as well as nearby services such as guesthouses and points of sale for local products. In addition, it provides simple and user-friendly databases of the Palestinian flora and fauna that made the website an online educational tool serving different sectors of the society. In 2018, the logo of Mahmiyat.ps was officially registered as a trademark in Palestine. 

Overall, we encourage visitors from all over the world to experience the wildlife firsthand!

The initial phases of this project (year 2016-2017) were supported by the European Union. The contents of this website is the sole responsibility of the involved organizations and can in no way be taken to reflect the views of the funders.
