Saving Lebanon’s legendary cedar trees

There are efforts afoot to preserve Lebanon’s legendary cedar trees. These cedars have been an important part of life in the region for at least eight thousand years, but they’re vanishing from the landscape.

The cedars of Lebanon are a symbol in this part of the world: of strength, and of longevity.

This piece aired today on The World, and it will be part of our audio series for the Encyclopedia of Life as well.

I also produced a short audio slideshow with some photos and extra audio from my reporting of the story. You can watch that right here:
