OBBA story

Of the OBBA story

Operation Big Blue Association (OBBA) is a non-sectarian, not for profit and nongovernmental Environmental organization working mainly on the conservation of coastal and aquatic biodiversity as well as the integrated and sustainable development of the Lebanese waters.

It was founded in 1997 by a group of responsible divers who were profoundly disturbed by the incessant encounter of sea turtles entangled and suffocating with plastic bags.

Over the years, thousands of tons of waste were removed from the Lebanese seashore and the Lebanese waters as well as from rivers. Aside, best ecosystem management practices, both practical and theoretical, were taught to thousands of volunteers.

OBBA is registered at the Ministry of Youth and Sports under 161/1/2001 read more
