Hello, Lebanon! One of own species is under siege. Believe it or not, we actually have a turtle sanctuary called the Orange House in the municipality of Mansouri, where 1.4 km of coastline are preserved for our turtles to come back every year to lay eggs. However, developers want to build a beach for women on top of this site, and thereby ruining our last turtle sanctuary.

My fellow Lebanese, we cannot continue to allow the extinction of our animal species. Kindly sign this petition and protect one of our national sites and animals!
