The American Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (ASPNI) was founded in 1986, to help raise awareness and support for the work of the Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel (SPNI), Israel's oldest and largest environmental organization. 

Since 1953, SPNI has worked to promote knowledge, love, and respect for the land among its citizens and abroad.

With rapidly growing population density, urban and rural development and a land mass the size of New Jersey, it is of critical importance to preserve the remaining open space and the green areas left in Israel. SPNI is at the forefront of this effort, while promoting sustainable alternative development that balances residential needs. 

SPNI's legacy of accomplishment lies in its commitment to public involvement. SPNI educates and leads citizens to become advocates for the environment. We invite you to join us in this effort.
