When this happens, it's usually because the owner only shared it with a small group of people, changed who can see it or it's been deleted.

THIS IS A CALL FOR HELP! - Please help and share!

We have never expected anything in return for the work we do, but now we can't handle the increasing costs on our own. In the first half of this year, our electricity bill, which comes in at an average of 11 thousand TL per month and which we had paid regularly, has reached an average of 45 thousand TL in the last 4 months, and a total of 181 thousand TL, although there has been no change in usage.

This is just our electricity expense... Imagine many other costs such as personnel expenses, taxes, depreciation and fuel expenses of vehicles used in animal rescue, all maintenance and treatment expenses of animals, communication expenses are added to these every month...

Should we shut down our biobank freezers where invaluable samples of thousands of animals that have come to our Center are kept? stop using the intensive care units/rooms we use for the treatment of animals? not use proper climatization for illegal animals confiscated by the government and handed over to us, and let them suffer? Should we not operate the filtration systems of the tanks of the injured sea turtles that come to our Center?

At this stage, you can either support us by donating directly or help us reach a handful of people/institutions who are willing to contribute to the environment, nature and wildlife in this country and are ready to contribute 1 minimum wage per month regularly so that we can achieve permanent sustainability at least in our electricity expenses. Aren't there any nature-loving people or institutions in this country that can make this kind of contribution?

Note: The cost of the 200kW solar system needed for the park is approximately 2,750,000TL. We are open to any suggestions on how we can meet this amount...

Note2: When the first bill of 71,600TL was received (actually, it was 87,500TL, then 15,800TL of fuel change fee reduction), we objected to KIB-TEK that such a difference is not normal, but was told it was a normal.

Update!! BIGGER THAN EVER!

With their plumage and adult feathers growing in perfect condition, these twelve juveniles will be soon move to our soft release cage. Designed specially for ducks and water birds, it has a big pond surrounded with foliage to make them feel comfortable. In this enclosure they will be free to develop their natural behaviours.

They will have the opportunity to swim and learn their natural food sources before release. This enclosure has a door onto the water, allowing the juveniles to swim in and out of the enclosure as they like; a mechanism that keeps potential predators outside of the cage.

Providing the animals with a natural environment during their stay is a crucial part of the rehabilitation process.

A HAPPY HOME!

Sometimes, helping wildlife can be as simple as fitting a wooden box to a tree! To help local birds, we have fitted nesting boxes to some of the large trees just in front of our centre and we are happy to say that they are already in use! This year two adult kestrels have been doing their bit for the wild population and have been using one of our boxes to raise some chicks.

Kestrels are already the most common bird of prey in Cyprus, and soon there will be a few more!

There is news about our long-legged buzzard chick rescued from the sea the other day!

After a 3-day visit to CWRI, the long-legged buzzard flapped from Taşkent to its freedom once again soared to the Karpaz Cape in the evening of the same day. It seems that the landscape between Dipkarpaz village and Karpaz Cape will be the permanent home of this year's long-legged buzzard chick.

Our chick we have been following for the last 2 days flew away from the Karpaz Cape towards the sea several times during the day, and although it scared us, it returned to the land from a suitable distance every time. It looks like the chick learned the lesson for now.

Our one-year-old Long-legged Buzzard chick, rescued 3 days ago after falling into the sea, retook flight to freedom today after the medical diagnosis.

We will continue to monitor the chick continuously from the GPS transmitter. We wonder if it will go to the Karpaz region again or will it choose another area this time.

As you know, the Cyprus Marinelife Center - KΔ±brΔ±s Deniz CanlΔ±larΔ± Merkezi , established under the Cyprus Wildlife Research Institute, has been conducting research and conservation studies in the Karpaz Peninsula, one of the most critical sea turtle nesting areas of our island and the entire Mediterranean, for 2 years. Our excitement rises as the hatching season approaches on the Peninsula. In the coming days, with the participation of you, our followers, volunteers, and supporters, we will organize nest excavation activities and hatchling releases which are the beginning of the next life stages of baby sea turtles. Keep following Cyprus MarineLife Center’s Facebook and Instagram accounts to hear more from us and attend events.

Cyprus Wildlife Research Institute is feeling excited.

The first hatchlings of the season emerged in the early hours of the morning today on the Karsiyaka coast. The hatchlings were encountered during the regular beach monitoring activities carried out under the scope of the Sea Turtle Research and Conservation Project implemented by the Cyprus MarineLife Center under the sponsorship of Telsim, with the contributions of the Ministry of Tourism, Environment and Culture, Karşıyaka Turtle Watch and Lapta Municipality, #cyprusmarinelifecenter #cypruswildliferesearchinstitute #cwri #seaturtles #seaturtle #seaturtleconservation
