Save the one of the very few Turtle Beach Reserves in Lebanon and probably in the East Mediterranean– Mansouri Beach – South Lebanon
Endangered Species of Turtles coming from all around the Mediterranean and the Planet have been coming for thousands of years to lay their eggs and reproduce on this beach.
Local activists have managed to maintain the beach clean and maximum safeguard the baby Turtles.
Now the Municipality has decided to make a parking and development activities on the beach to attract beach goers. Without a strict protection plan, this beach cannot be sustainably managed.
Many visitors have been coming and will continue to visit in a very sustainable and ecological manner and we would like to maintain it in this way and further protect the other beaches around.
Mansouri beach is a pristine beach where passionate local activists have been attending to the Sea turtle conservation project.
Most of the land around is owned by the Lebanese Government therefore under the control of the Ministry of finance who MUST exercise its duty to protect this Universal Heritage on the Lebanese Coast.
ACTION IS REQUIRED IMMEDIATELY AS ONCE INSTALLATIONS AND CAR PARK ARE READY, HORDS OF PEOPLE WILL INVADE the Turtles BEACH WITH GRAVE CONSEQUENCES.
