A Rocha Lebanon was founded in 1996 with its initial focus to save the Aammiq marshes from destruction. The Aammiq Wetland is Lebanon’s most significant remaining natural freshwater site, one of all too few in the Middle East. This major stop-over site for migrating birds was under severe threat. Due to the work of A Rocha, the reduction of its habitats has been reversed, and it is now a designated Ramsar site. Beyond Aammiq, A Rocha has gained valuable experience in working throughout the country, on behalf of government departments, nature reserves and international conservation bodies. This included scientific research, practical conservation and environmental education.
