New Prop Guard Model
Dear Friends, no doubt you would be very pleased that The Kaptan June Sea Turtle Foundation has supplied and fitted a propeller guard to six Dalyan boats and one to Göcek. It has been not easy to persuade a number of Kaptans to install propeller guards. They are saving turtles from injury and we are anticipating that more and more caring Kaptans will follow this trend.
Just to remind our Kaptan June Sea Turtle Conservation Foundation gives free charge and fits them to the boats without payment, too. Many thanks to Abidin Kurt who gave his time and good-will to this positive event. Boats equipped with a propeller guard can be recognised by signs on their boats saying ‘ Kaplumbaga Dostu Teknesi-Turtle friendly boat’. Stan Allett, a valued volunteer from the UK, shows the propeller guard now mounted suitably demonstrating its protective qualities around a propeller. This is now on show at the beach hut and enables visitors to see exactly how the guard works. The turtles can look forward to a safer future on our waterways.
Many thanks to Stan for his ingenuity in constructing this model.

Dear Mrs. Haimoff,
I hope I’m addressing ‘the’ Mrs. Haimoff, which I mean to have met during my childhood in Geneva. My mother Elisabeth has been cooking there, I was playmate of Claire Haimoff then. My father Josef, called Sepp was a helper in house and garden, taking care of the 2 poodles, Susi and Nicky and a bigger blond dog, whose name I have forgotten. On the free days we were allowed to take the small car, a Bentley for our tours around Geneva.
I tried to find CLAIRE before but did not succeed yet, till I saw a report via ARTE showing your turtles project, naming Captain June Haimoff.
I hope that contacting you does not bother or annoy you. I,would be pleased to receive a response from you, wishing you a Merry Christmas and a successful and happy New Year 2017, ful of health and joy! Kind regards from Austria, Ingrid Brennsteiner-Klebinder
