Launch of SPNL’s 2020 Annual Report: Hima For Peace
We are delighted to announce the launch of the Society for Protection of Nature in Lebanon (SPNL) 2020 report, available now for download.
This annual report is designed to give you an overview of SPNL’s main achievements in 2020. You will also find an overview of the current programmes and projects and the significant results achieved.
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.
