Greetings,
Akkar trail is a project for sustainable ecotourism within the Akkar governorate in northern Lebanon, it focuses on mountainous walking trails of more than 300 km in length and works on marking and locating these trails in addition to documenting natural diversity in it to preserve and protect the environment and keep the wheel of ecotourism rolling, which also stimulates the productive  sectors associated with it, moreover it secures income for hundreds of families and achieves the economic renaissance needed for this region where more than half of its population are living under the poverty line.
Although Akkar governorate has enormous natural ingredients, it suffers from the absence of real plans for development in it, its forests and nature suffer from neglection and mismanagement.
The Akkar trail team, which includes dozens of environmental activists from various specializations works together on documenting plants and wildlife in order to protect them. Efforts have resulted in the discovery of hundreds of species of plants and flowers, including two new records for Lebanon, one of which is the Iris basaltica, which was considered extinct until its discovery.
The team is currently working on trying to grow these species despite its difficulties, with the aim of increasing their numbers and protecting them from the dangers that threaten them such as random urban expansion and climate change.
With the economic crisis that struck Lebanon, it became very difficult to continue this work because it requires funding and equipment, most of which are imported from abroad, and with the decrease of the value of the Lebanese pound against the US dollar these imported equipments are now much more expensive.
Your help reflects positively on the hope of restoring the environmental and ecological system damaged by human intervention, and it gives us a drive to achieve more in the field of developing local communities and restore the economic cycle in them.
Thanks

Maggi Young
