This woman is amazing and has never wavered in her fight to protect the turtles habitat as well as giving medical care to those that have been injured and her campaign to put protectors around motors on boats. We visit turtle beach every time we go to Dalyan and have seen the positive results that Kaptan June has produced

I visit Dalyan several times a year and have met June several times. What a woman! Works tirelessly and so interesting. I could talk to her all day about her work and her life! A statue would be very fitting for her.

Thanks for adding your voice.

Kaptan June led the movement to protect Iztuzu beach from commercial development and inspired the creation of Turkey's first Nature Conservation Area. Much more than one of the most important nesting beaches of Caretta Caretta (the endangered Loggerhead Turtles) has been saved and put under protection. Also, without her actions Dalyan would still be either a small fishing village or would be a large and mainly uncontrolled holiday resort.
