we need it indeed..however, we will make ourselves lucky :)
assicuriamo, a questi nostri fratelli minori,la salvaguardia della specie.
I have lived in Nahariya which is about 10 Km South of this spot (ראש הנקרה Rosh HaNikra).
congratulations, but no one cares, and you were living on occupied land.
go back to where you came from, child of Zion, you're unwanted here
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.
thank you for updating...our aim to preserve (nothing about a private business ) and it is not just about the Mansouri Beach..it is just stated as a live example under threat...please get in touch for more info, ..we need more people to work
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...
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...
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 Petition is not written on stones and can be updated and reviewed accordingly; for further discussions, you are more than welcome to contact me directly..thank you for your understanding
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 !!
I'm totally for the protection of the Turtles but let's not use the Turtles to protect a private business!
Please maintain the focus on the Essential..the Petition has nothing to do with a Private business. read it again please. an update on the Petition has added information about local activists that have a small guess house supporting them to sustain their Turtles conservation activities. we do not wish to make a debate about personal issues here. thank you for your positive support.
Again your petition starts with a false claim! it's not the only nesting beach in Lebanon and the Eastern Med, next time you want to do public claims do some basic research :)
you are reading an update and not the Petition..please read again and feel free to share more info so we can update properly and please share it with other groups working on the ground for other beaches ...
I am ready to introduce and support any action any one of you might like to engage in Parliament or with the government. Let me know.
Thank you for your support. Would suggest to Introduce/spread the messages that this Cause has and prioritize them by the Urgency of the Danger ...
If we don't act today, we will regretted tomorrow!!!!
Mr. Moukheiber, could you please let us know what are the options we have and how you could support?
I totally endorse the cause and the initiative. But how can we, as responsible citizens, influence decision makers in the government who are not concerned, and worse, often accomplice in destroying the natural beauty of Lebanon?
become the majority, share awareness, make little positive acts, spread this petition..the list is big of what we can do when we want to do..thanks for your support
YES ,,,,, BUT HOW I CAN?
We Love LEBANON and we are proud to be lebanese , and because of this , we should defend our Patrimonium.
take positive action and start helping by sharing...
We work for the welfare of nature that God has created with such love and disperdiçamos, what he left us.

Recently, a phoenician port had been removed in Mina AL-Hosn, BCD, to be replaced by residential towers! Won't any site with a historical importance be spared from this..
the Ministry of Culture is not even aware..:(
