A main vocation of the ecotourism activities of the Friends of Nature is to support local communities with alternative income from nature-based activities, in order to
- engage them in the chain of beneficiaries and supporters of ecotourism,
- make them local advocates for preservation of natural assets and resources,
- support their livelihood in the countryside to forbid their migration to the cities after better livelihood opportunities, in order to maintain the mountains of Lebanon alive with their original communities.
