A group of American tourists visited Turkey with ‘Hidden Places’, a tour group who visit unusual destinations. The highlight of their trip to Dalyan was asking to meet Kaptan June and visit her hut and learn about the Foundation. The group were introduced to our aims and the problems turtles face in Dalyan and all over Turkey. With great interest they learnt the story of Iztuzu Beach, June’s campaign against the planned huge hotel. With international awareness, June and concerned friends were able to convince the Turkish government to declare Iztuzu a Specially Protected Area (SPA).
