The Syrian Society for the Conservation of Wildlife (SSCW)
SSCW is amongst the national pioneer NGOs concerned actively with the conservation of biodiversity for a sustainable wildlife within a frame of solid relations and partnerships to the development of the society. It aims at the rehabilitation of various ecosystems and endangered species in collaboration with national, regional and international partners.
“Interacting with the Society and knowing the mission that it was advocating for during a series of activities in the Jabboul (IBA and Ramsar Site) had inspired me and others in the community to shoot bird using our cameras instead of our rifles and get inspired to be involved in birdwatching tourism in the area.”
