*VIDEO* Anti-Poaching work in Bekaa Valley, Lebanon.

11.11.2022

Bodycam video shows operation with the police in the Bekaa Valley, Lebanon: Near the city of Baalbek, CABS teams together with Lebanese Security Forces and our partners from the Society for the Protection of Nature in Lebanon (SPNL) and MESHC Anti-Poaching Unit dismantled 26 huge nets and several electronic decoy callers at four bird trapping sites in the Bekaa Valley. The Bekaa Plain is located inland in Lebanon and is considered an important corridor for migratory birds away from the coast. This rural region is equally considered a poaching hotspot, as hundreds of thousands of birds are illegally caught with nets in the villages every year, which are then sold or intended for consumption.
