Marine Hima of Qoleileh Mansouri

Hima of Qoleileh Mansouri Pic 2

Qoleileh and Mansouri are coastal villages in southern Lebanon, known by their high marine biodiversity. Furthermore, this Hima was announced on 13 December 2006 to protect the southern Lebanese coast and its terrestrial and marine resources, especially globally threatened sea turtles (Green Turtles and Leatherback Turtles). It covers an area of approximately eight thousand square meters, by which its seashore provides the possibility of turtle and birdwatching.

Activities to be done:

  • Bird watching in addition to other marine animals

  • Visiting archaeological sites such as the holy place of Prophet Omran and others.

It is important to note that this created interest in the next Mansouri village to announce marine Hima through decision no. 7 in 2008.
