Georges released in Kayfoun Koranic Garden
Having been rehabilitated by the anti poaching unit (APU) of the Middle East Sustainable Hunting Center (MESHC), a buzzard was released into the wild at Kayfoun Koranic Garden. The buzzard was named “Georges” in accordance with the wishes of the person who saved it, Mr. Samer Kanaan, who requested that it be named after his son. It is the custom of the anti poaching unit to name birds after their rescuers.
It is noteworthy that the MESHC and SPNL, which is Birdlife Lebanon, are implementing a number of major projects aimed at conserving migratory birds, including the Migratory Soaring Birds (MSB) funded by the Global Environment Forum (GEF), the Egyptian Vulture New Life Project funded by the European Union, and the Safe Flyways for Bird Migration funded by the Swiss MAVA Foundation.
