Hyenas in Lebanon are at risk of extinction

A Lebanese NGO called Ghadi is raising awareness about the hyenas in Lebanon that are at risk of extinction. The NGO is working on creating a campaign to spread the word about the current situation of the hyenas in order to prevent its endangerment. Hyenas are dangerous animals; however, they have an important role in the environment and the ecosystem. The first step that should be taken is to forbid the killings of these animals. Many hunters pride themselves when they shoot hyenas. The NGO would like to raise awareness about this issue on social media, television, and school curriculums. According to


, the founder of Ghadi Fadi Ghanem believes that students should learn about the role of these animals in the environment in Lebanon. Ghadi warns that the extinction of these animals will put the Lebanese environment in danger.
