Caretta-caretta turtels and Iztuzu beach
ztuzu Beach is a 4.5km long beach near Dalyan, in the Ortaca district of the Province of Mula in southwestern Turkey. The beach is a narrow spit of land, which forms a natural barrier between the fresh water delta of the Dalyan river and the Mediterranean. It is one of the main breeding grounds for loggerhead sea turtles (Caretta caretta) in the Mediterranean and is therefore often referred to as "Turtle Beach". The loggerhead turtle (Caretta caretta) is on the IUCN Red list of endangered animals. For this reason the beach has had a protected status since 1988 and is part of the Kyceiz-Dalyan Special Environmental Protection Area.
