Lebanon’s southern beaches along the coast of Tyre are home to an abundance of local wildlife and are popular nesting sites for the endangered Loggerhead and Green Sea Turtles. The "Marah" structure, named after the Phoenician goddess, is a deployable scissor structure that spans tensile fabric over a deck providing a shaded area at the beach. The structure marks an iconic meeting point and awareness center for marine biodiversity and endangered species of marine and coastal wildlife.
