    ​​​A Message from the Director

    "Nature encompasses the mind, body, and soul. It transcends age, behavior, disciplines, and specialties; it is truly fascinating.

    I understand that we, at AUB-NCC, cannot protect nature alone, but I also see the good in people. I believe they hold the solution to all our environmental challenges; we are only vehicles of hope.

    For all its fruits and blessings, nature only asks for mutual support and respect in return."

    Dr. Najat A. Sal​iba; Director of the Nature Conservation Center, AUB - NCC​ 2019 Laureate of the L'Oréal-UNESCO International Award for Women in Science
