Iraqi Natural History Museum Receives Book Donation
Iraq Fact of the Day

The Iraqi Natural History Museum received 34 crates of academic books and journals from American universities. The Natural History Museum is Iraq's primary center for studying conservation biology, ecology, and behavior. The donation provides a new foundation for the museum's library, which has not been updated in nearly two decades. In the new Iraq, growing relationships with the international community are opening new doors for Iraqi scholars.
