Our foundation invited Sir David Bellamy and his wife Rosemary to Dalyan during June. In honour of this well-known British environmental scientist, we gave a cocktail party at the Dalyan Resort Hotel. Sir David joined the cocktail party with his wife Rosemary . Local officials Arif Sari, the Dalyan mayor, Hasan Karaçelik and Kadir Sahin, the districts education commissioner attended the event. Many locals and tourists had come to share this lovely event with us in the wonderful surroundings right at the river.
An auction of several pictures that were donated by various artists was held for the benefit of our foundation and brought a good result. Sir David gave interviews
and signed some of the auctioned pictures.
The media reported in detail, which again promoted our cause to the Turkish public.
There were relaxed days for Sir David, too. Besides a nice boat trip on an environmental electric boat, propeller guarded of course, and chatting in June’s garden he was able to enjoy some excursions and we could show him our surroundings including a visit to June’s village house at Kisla.
