Environmental education and awareness in Lebanon

05.06.2024

In addition to our main international bird protection camps that take place in Lebanon twice a year, our staff and partners also increasingly present workshops and seminars to raise awareness regarding the importance of environmental conservation and curbing the widespread poaching of migratory birds. Together with our partners from SPNL and MESHC, we hold events with politicians, police officers, local government officials, mayors, hunters and at schools. The focus of the training is on methods for documenting crimes, enforcement and education projects at a community level. A key concern is to also highlight the significance of the Cedar State as a migratory bottleneck for millions of migratory birds. Last week, CABS staff and our joint Anti-Poaching Unit spoke to around 50 students in the northern Bekaa Valley at the invitation of a school.
