“Amid the military occupation, it was remarkable to see room for science: room for an institution like the Palestine Museum of Natural History to even exist amongst the chaos of everyday restrictions, fear of violence, death, and destruction. Then I asked myself, “why shouldn’t it exist?” Nature is all about survival of the fittest, and acquiring knowledge is a powerful form of non-violent resistance.”
