I wonder who writes these petitions! the Orange House is NOT " the only Turtle Beach Reserve in Lebanon and probably in the East Mediterranean– Mansouri Beach – South Lebanon" it's a private venue and they did a lot of efforts for protection and conservation but let's not fool people by giving wrong data!

There are more than 10 different turtle nesting sites on Lebanese coast, one of them Is the Tyre Coast Nature Reserve.

Gabriel, we all appreciate your support, but when writing a public petition and sharing it with thousands of people you want to be giving them facts not illusions, saying that's the only turtle nesting site on Eastern Med this is so lame and the only site in Lebanon this is so NOT True.
Yes they have done a lot of conservation, protection and education efforts, but still it's private business!

Gabriel, we all appreciate your support, but when writing a public petition and sharing it with thousands of people you want to be giving them facts not illusions, saying that's the only turtle nesting site on Eastern Med this is so lame and the only site in Lebanon this is so NOT True.
Yes they have done a lot of conservation, protection and education efforts, but still it's private business!

Moreover Orange House is not protected area by a ministerial decree / law it's claimed as "naturally protected site" by a municipal decree. So it doesn't fall under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Environment. In order to maximize the protection of the site a proposal for "protected area" should be addressed to the MoE to review and declare it as PA under ministerial law. This means the lot will be under the authority of the MoE and managed by Protected Area bureau under the patronage of the municipality of Mansouri. so the turtles will be safe but the Orange House status to be reviewed!

sorry, i am not sure why it is so important to you the Orange House..? we have listed their website only to show their activities about the Turtles and we have absolutely no link to them other than our common cause the Environment Conservation that includes the Turtles..i guess here, making the whole debate about the Orange house and taking the Focus from the main points is counter-productive and not helpful. are you really sure you support the Cause or..? if you have further details, this...

the Ramlet El Bayda turtle nests are much more endangered than the Mansouri ones, what are you doing to protect them ?!

Just before we all get emotionally ecstatic about the petition, we need more clear info and data... if the project is to support local livelihood within a sustainable and eco friendly development, to improve the socio-econimic conditions of the locals and open the site for the public we are with that.... Protected Areas are for the People to Benefit and learn from not just for one tiny niche minority !!

C’est bien et utile de signer une pétition, mais certainement insuffisant. Entre autres actions,
il serait peut-être intéressant de transmettre ce dossier à la commission pour l’environnement au parlement. A toute fin utile, voici les noms des membres de cette commission , d’après le site lp.gov.lb :

(The great majority of Lebanese people are certainly not aware of this issue, addressing the Lebanese Parliament commission for environment could be a useful step. Media should be reached...)
