Propeller Guards for Tour Boats
Stainless steel propeller guards are mounted over the tour boat propellers like cages, preventing them to further slash sea and other turtles (like the Nile Turtles and other Freshwater Turtles in the Dalyan River). This is done at no cost to the boat owners. The project aims to set a good example and collect compelling date about injuries to turtles. We hope that our example will bring a policy change and the introduction of an obligation to mount propeller guards.
