Uri Shanas, Founder of TiME, explains our story.
Behind This is My Earth, a great ecological entrepreneur’s initiative gathers scientific knowledge and evidence, democratic participation, and transparency into one unique organization.
TiME is the only nature conservation nonprofit that allows you to effectively buy and protect lands for as little as 1$, vote and donate as a gift to your friends and family.
And such a great idea came from the mind of one Professor of Zoology and Nature Conservation in the Department of Biology and Environment of the University of Haifa at the Oranim Campus.
