The Society for Protection of Nature in Lebanon (SPNL) has been working for 40 years to protect the biodiversity of Lebanon, resulting in 15 declared IBAs and KBAs across the Lebanese territory. Since 2004, and upon the discovery of a documented proof of Hima pre-existence in Lebanon, SPNL has evolved its mission to revitalize the Hima approach, through merging the traditional knowledge and practices with modern scientific research. Along with a network of partners and donors, SPNL adopted the Hima Revival approach to promote the conservation of IBAs, through the sustainable use of natural resources, while empowering local and traditional knowledge, culture and heritage. A total of 25 Hima, representing 6% of the Lebanese territory, have been established in collaboration with respective municipalities.

Among the species that we are working to protect:
– The Egyptian Vulture
– The Common Otter
– The Syrian Serin Bird
– The Monk Seals
– The Green Turtle and the Loggerhead Turtle
– The Wild Cat
– The Iris sofarana
– The Persian Squirrel
– The JuniperusExcelsa
– The Wolf (Canis Lupis pallipes)
– The Sociable Plover Bird
– The Saker Falcon
– The Velvet Scoter
