WE CAN ALL MAKE BIG CHANGES BY CHANGING LITTLE HABITS TO CONSERVE THE NATURE
Every little thing we do can help protect our natural world
DON’T LITTER AND GET INVOLVED IN BEACH CLEANS
PHASE OUT UNNECESSARY SINGLE-USE PLASTICS
DON’T TOUCH OR HARASS TURTLES
Every year, thousands of sea creatures die due to plastic pollution.
Saying ‘no thank you’ to plastic straws, bags and bottles. Say ‘hello’ to reusable alternatives
If you see a nesting turtle or hatchlings on the beach be sure to follow our responsible guidelines. Contact us if you see a confused hatchling going the wrong way.
DON’T USE BRIGHT LIGHTS ON NESTING BEACHES
DON’T INSTALL BARRIERS ON NESTING BEACHES
DON’T DRIVE VEHICLES ON NESTING BEACHES
Hatchlings orientate themselves towards the brightest horizon. Artificial lights confuse them and reduce survival rates.
Fences, sun umbrellas, and beach furniture can damage existing nests and make it more challenging for turtles to find a suitable spot to lay their eggs.
It is now illegal to drive a vehicle across a marked nesting area in Turkey.
DON’T LIGHT FIRES ON NESTING BEACHES
DON’T GO FISHING AT NIGHT ON NESTING BEACHES
CHOOSE ECO-FRIENDLY HOTELS & TOURISM OPERATORS
If you accidentally light a fire on top of a turtle nest the eggs will cook!
Fıshıng lines, hooks, and nets can cause serious injuries to sea turtles.
Ask questions before booking holidays and support operators who minimize their impact on the environment.
ONLY EAT SUSTAINABLE SEAFOOD
Support small-scale fisheries that are not responsible for sea turtle mortality.
Volunteer on our projects, follow our efforts on social media or donate to our turtle conservation fund.
