Welcome To ZAVIT – Israel's science and environment news agency

Are you looking for up-to-date news content, interviews, expert opinions, photos, and videos about science and the environment in Israel? ZAVIT is your gateway to Israeli environmental research.

ZAVIT is an initiative of The Israeli Society of Ecology and Environmental Sciences (established in 1970), and its unique online platform regularly publishes accurate, unbiased, free-to-use information.

ZAVIT stories cover a wide range of local environmental topics, including green-tech, water, energy, climate change, health, agriculture, and many more.

We invite you to join us and get exclusive access to our stories and publish them—more information on how to do that you can find right here below.

Exclusive content for media outlets

ZAVIT offers new and original content about science and the environment in Israel. Registered journalists enjoy full access to a diverse selection of unique content and can turn articles into their very own exclusive stories (including contact details of interviewees and other relevant information).

As a registered journalist, you get permission to lock a story, which makes it invisible to other users for 48 hours – with one click. Two hours before the 48-hour lock expires, you will receive an email notification from ZAVIT. You can now decide to either use the story or to release it, making the content available again to all registered journalists.
