Over a month ago I was ranting on and on about the economy and its sometimes adverse affects on our environment. One of the cases I mentioned back then was the proposal to build a tourist complex that would essentially wipe out Dibbin Forest. The complex consists of 4 hotels spanning over 450 dunums.
Many people have never been to this forest but it is quite something. In 1957 Dibbin was identified as one of the richest reserves of natural forests in the Kingdom, which is also quite something when you consider that less than 1% of Jordan is made up of forests.
This thing is for real folks. Those trees will all be uprooted and probably burnt right then and there very much like the catastrophe caused by the Ayla project that is nearing completion in Madaba and resulted in the uprooting and burning of hundreds and hundreds of old olive trees.
So I implore all readers of this blog to help us out and sign the petition to stop this disaster and save this forest.
If you are a blogger please blog about this topic if only a few lines to encourage visitors to sign the petition.
I created a little button you can put on your blog:
Let’s start this campaign going.
