Migratory bird paths over Lebanon

The ongoing research on urban biodiversity being carried out at theOtherDada (tOD) aims at investigating and characterizing the native fauna and flora composition of Beirut.

The research looks at the existing native flora and fauna of Beirut by looking at the surviving, the forgotten ones that were present in old Beiruti gardens, and by looking at species of the Mediterranean area.

Here is a map showing that Lebanon is located under different bird migratory paths. The next steps are identify the native flora and to cross reference the flora species with the fauna that depends and feeds on the plants.Lebanon migratory birds
