Poaching Areas, Lebanon

The entire world population of the lesser spotted eagle crosses Lebanon twice a year. Quite a few animals end up in the hail of bullets from Lebanese poachers, who annually kill numerous birds of protected species – including birds of prey, goat milkers, storks, Pelicans and hundreds of thousands of songbirds – kill. In addition to the shooting for the domestic hearth, the commercial mass trapping with huge net trapping systems is another problem, to which countless small birds fall victim every year. Plucked and frozen songbirds are considered a delicacy in Lebanon and are offered openly in most supermarkets and many restaurants despite the official ban.
The Anti-poaching unit is a Liaison between for Sustainable Hunting program for SPNL ​(Society for the Protection of Nature in Lebanon), and the Middle East Sustainable Hunting Center (MESHC) in partnership with Committee Against Bird Slaughter (CABS), works against the illegal killing of birds in Lebanon. Our campaign includes bird protection camps training courses for police officers and game rangers, as well as monitoring the trade in protected birds in markets, restaurants, and on the Internet.
Your generous support will be added to the support that we get from Migratory Soaring Birds Project funded by the Global Environment Fund (GEF) and the project to fight illegal hunting funded by MAVA.
