Scouts in Lebanon Help Migratory Bird Sanctuaries

Recommended Posts

The restoration of migratory bird sanctuaries in the Middle East is a perennial challenge. One conservationist deploys scouts to help.


Community members who look after conservation areas are known as “homat al hima”: protectors of the hima, like in the Tunisian anthem. The group likes to work with young members of the Scouts because they have been “homat” since the beginning, Mr. Serhal said — cleaning up, rehabilitating and reforesting conservation areas. They are disciplined, after all, and loving nature is part of their scouts’ promise.
