The Fethiye region of Turkey is renowned for its spectacular marine environment and productive inland areas rich in agriculture and cultural heritage. The area’s popularity with tourists exerts pressure which, if left unchecked, may damage the very resources that sustain local people and attract visitors.
Our aim is to identify ways to preserve the natural resources of Fethiye and the surrounding region, whilst continuing to provide local, economic benefits.
What we’re doing
We’ve been working with local farmers towards more sustainable farming practices and to enable them to supply fresh, local produce to hotels. We’re now working to improve boating practices and protect the fragile marine environment.
