The sight of a deer chewing on grass is not something we’re used to in Lebanon, yet it exists in West Bekaa at the A’ana Nature Reserve. This little-known gem is located towards the end of Ammiq village where hundreds of deers live in a huge reserve that is also home to rabbits, ducks, and other woodland creatures.

Ammiq is a gorgeous area all-together and is famous for its wetlands which stretch for 280 hectares. The Village’s Swamp lies on one of the most important bird migrations’ routes in the world with over 250 species recorded in the area.

The above picture is the most recent one captured in the past couple of weeks. Here are more pictures below taken in past years of the reserve.
