Animals Lebanon Plants Trees

Animal-rights group in Lebanon plants 1,000 trees to bring attention to endangered Lebanese wildlife.

Animals Lebanon, an animal-rights group in Lebanon, planted 1,000 trees across the country on Sunday, October 3, in honor of World Animal Day. The tree planting had the goal of bringing light to the struggle of Lebanese wildlife, and also helping replenish the country’s forests. Due to forest depletion and the allowance of personal collections of exotic animals, Lebanese wildlife faces endangerment on many fronts. “We all need to do far more to protect our wildlife and the habitats that sustain them,” Animals Lebanon President Lana Al-Khalil said. Animals Lebanon is helping draft a law proposal to be submitted to the Agricultural Ministry to promote the well being of animals and improve outdated welfare laws.
