Maten Natural Reserve
The Maten District has a very beautiful biodiversity that must be preserved for our future generations. But it has been under the attack of construction which has destroyed most of its beauty and wild life. CHREEK is working on preserving the virgin forests of Nhr- elMot, Ain Saade, Beit Mery, and Roumye. This is the last standing connected forest in Maten and we are on the verge of losing it. It is 10 minutes away from our capital, making it the natural lungs of Beirut. By preserving this area we would be kepping beauty, greenery and wild life which is under extinction.
