The Canadian Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel was founded in 2011 by Allan and Helaine Shiff. An earlier mission trip to Israel awoke in them a desire to rally fellow Canadians, to help protect Israel's treasured and threatened natural features by working with Israel's oldest environmental NGO, HaKhevra L'Haganat HaTeva (Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, or SPNI). Today, the goal of Nature Israel (formerly CSPNI) is to raise awareness and funds to support the activities of SPNI in Israel.
