Translation....

The dynamite fishing is a major problem, although forbidden in Lebanon, there is no measure of foresight or repression .. allerter Petition for public authorities against the scourge of dynamite fishing destroying all our eco -marine system. Application and implementation of surveillance patrol. overexploitation, pollution and dynamite fishing has destroyed marine life on the 220 ​​kilometers that make up the Mediterranean coast of Lebanon, leaving the 8,000 fishermen from the coastal city of Tyre, their main resource. "In the 60s, 70s and 80s, the sea was full of fish and the financial situation of fishermen was enviable" Some 2,000 families live from fishing in Tyre. Experts say several species, including red mullet, grouper and small barracudas are endangered, mainly due to poor fishing practices. "We destroy our sea," the illegal practice of dynamite fishing destroys marine ecosystem irremediable. sewage water flows also in the sea, sometimes including heavy metals from factories such as copper, zinc and vanadium. Additionally, some developers have invaded the coast, regardless of the environmental impact of their projects.

I really wanted to make a very low low comment about dynamite and Lebanese fishermen, but I guess some divine guide made me reconsider. The benefits of having 12/12/12 so near I guess.

Signed and noted without hesitation. The fisherman that would use dynamite to do this have no respect for the fish or wildlife and no understanding of the legacy they are leaving future generations. That photo of the dead turtle wasted on the beach disgusts me!

Thanks for this petition link Cher! I would send you a green star but Care2 says I have to wait. I would probably send you one every day if they would let me...:>)
