Overview

I am known as 'the turtle daddy'. My passion is the countryside and wild life that surrounds Fethiye, its mountains, forests, birds, flowers and coastal wetlands – and of course the sea turtles. I have a watching point at Fethiye, Calis Beach that is an ideal spot to study and care for the Carretta Carretta sea turtles which nest on the beaches here. Caretta Caretta are officially on the endangered list and slowly, slowly, there’s more awareness about protecting them in this area of Turkey.

It worth to mention that sea turtles have been around for up to 110 million years, visiting Fethiye\\\'s beaches to lay their eggs from May to July; long before humans were around. For the last 20 summers research teams from various Turkish and European universities have also been appearing on Fethiye\\\'s beaches every May.

How will we spend the days?
You will be provided information between 9-11pm and will be protecting and caring the Carretta Carrettas until 4 am.
Daytime is much relaxed. There will be general control of the eggs at the beach if needed. Otherwise, resting at hammocks will be your biggest activity :)

Accommodation
As a volunteer, you might camp close-by or stay at a shared house. Breakfast is on your budget but a huge dinner will be provided.

Languages
I can speak Turkish and English fluently with very limited German.

Fee
We are a volunteering project so do not ask a fee. However, whatever you hand in will be used for Carretta Carrettas.

Note: We do not have a min stay period but ideally for the in-need sea turtles you should spend at least 1 week up to 2 months (full summer).
