Merhaba from Fethiye nesting site

Now we are 10 days in Fethiye : time to give some informations! After our arrival  at Calis and Yaniklar beach, we were building up our camps, walking on morning and night shifts, painting and fencing new cages and cleaning up the information desk, which will open soon. This year we got invited from Hacettepe University to work with them on this project, which we really appreciate! Our team at Calis Beach had been really lucky, in the first night shift we have seen a loggerhead sea turtle nesting and on the second night shift 4! turtles. Each of them have made a nest. At Yaniklar Beach our team have seen a really huge loggerhead sea turtle with a carapace length of 0.88 m! Working day and night we are a little bit tired, but still full of energy! We also expect in a few days the first hatchlings! By now we have 20 nests at Calis Beach and 33 at Yaniklar Beach, and nesting season is not over yet! In our camp at Calis an "old" friend is living with us: Poyraz, the dog from last year is once again our lovely camp dog!
