Biodiversity crisis in Turkey - Cagan Sekercioglu's talk in Washington, DC, May 14


Dear friends and colleagues,

I am writing you about Turkey’s globally important biodiversity that is experiencing the biggest crisis in its history. Below, are some of our recent articles on the biodiversity, ecosystems, environmental problems, and conservation issues in Turkey, the only country that is almost entirely covered by three global biodiversity hotspots. You can also read about our NGO KuzeyDoga’s (www.kuzeydoga.org) conservation work, including initiating Turkey’s first wildlife corridor.

I'd like to invite those of you around Washington DC to my May 14 talk on Turkey's globally important biodiversity, to take place at 6:30 PM at the Turkish Embassy Residence. I will also discuss the conservation issues in the publications below. If you are interested in attending, please let me know ASAP, so I can put your name on the list. The embassy needs to know the names & emails of the people who are interested in attending and will send an official invitation.

All the best,

Cagan Sekercioglu
