Migratory birds bridge water, culture and religion

07-11-2008

The wonder of bird migration recently united two communities separated by water, culture and religion. At an event coorganised by the Society for the Protection of Nature in Lebanon (SPNL; BirdLife in Lebanon), the people of Anjar and Kfar Zabad villages jointly celebrated the cultural importance of bird migration as part of BirdLife’s World Bird Festival.

The event was held at the Bekaa wetlands and marked the announcement of Hima Anjar, which will strengthen the existing Hima Kfar Zabad. Hima is a traditional Islamic system under which communities manage natural areas and protect them from over-exploitation. …

The Bekaa wetlands are part of the Syrian-African Great Rift Valley. The area includes the Kfar Zabad – Anjar Important Bird Area which supports several globally and regionally threatened bird species, such as Pallid Harrier Circus macrourus, Vulnerable Eastern Imperial Eagle Aquila heliaca, Vulnerable Lesser Kestrel Falco naumanni, and Vulnerable Syrian Serin Serinus syriacus.
