800kg Shark Killed off the Mina Coast Of Tripoli a month ago
A fisherman from Tyre caught a 90Kg shark on Tuesday and sold it to a restaurant for $450. That makes it 3 or 4 sharks killed last month and yet nothing’s being done to raise awareness on that matter.
We are not even sure if the sharks are dangerous to humans or not. We just hear that they were killed and thrown away or sold which is wrong by all means.
Beirut’s River Crocodile was flown a week ago and made it the UK today! He is now under the supervision of a team of specialists at Crocodiles of the World Conservation and Education Center!
Animals Lebanon with the help of MEA and Sukleen made that happen.
Someone needs to put an end to this reckless fishing in Lebanon. Not all sharks are dangerous to human and we shouldn’t kill the first shark we spot.

This is just too much!
Dynamite fishing is extremely harmful to the underwater environment as it kills a large number of fish and marine organisms and destroys the coral reefs that support the fish. It’s quite sickening to see these fisherman rejoice over what they’ve done.
Animals Lebanon recently took up the case to free Charlie, a nine year old chimpanzee that was smuggled into Lebanon in 2005 and sold to Animal City zoo, and they finally managed to free the animal yesterday after a court ruling. Charlie is the last known chimpanzee in Lebanon. He will be moved to approved chimpanzee sanctuary where he could get expert care and live with other chimpanzees in a natural enclosure.
Few days ago, Animals Lebanon also managed to rescue a neglected lion and two tigers from a zoo in Lebanon.
Thumbs up to Animals Lebanon for their awesome work!
Two tigers and one lion were rescued today by Animals Lebanon from a private zoo. These big cats were the only survivors as a lion, a cheetah and a tiger had died in the previous years after the owner refused to give them up. Now AnimalsLebanon need help to get them to the Tonga Terra d’Accueil sanctuary in France which offered to give them a home. In an ideal situation, the owner would be thrown in jail or fined for these practices and the concerned ministry would pay for these animals’ trips but that’s not the case unfortunately in Lebanon.
Having said that, you can either [donate] to help AnimalsLebanon or contact them if there’s any other way you could help with.
I am not sure how dumb you have to be to drive on the highway with your dog on the front hood.
I am not sure if it’s the same crocodile they’ve spotted before, as I heard that there may be more than just one.
Update: Check how big that crocodile turned out to be lol!
Update2: Jason from Animals Lebanon just told me the crocodile measures 130cm.
