Defence KBA Book Re-Published

Underwater Research Society has published “Defence and Protection of Key Biodiversity Areas Along Turkish Coasts” as one of the outcomes of the project with the same name, which was carried out between April 2015 and December 2019.

The book consisted of 28 cases of recent habitat protection and 9 cases of previous habitat protection practices along Turkish coasts. Each coastal habitat protection and defence story is given individually while around 400 pages of the relevant communique letters to the responsible official departments and their replies are given in the Annexes, which is considered to provide useful examples how to deal with similar problematic coastal habitat destruction case in the country in the future, if any.
