Press Release with Pictures: The Voice of Nature
The statement writes that Tarkan's music and lyrics and Gencebay's collaboration have become the Doğa Derneği's new voice in their campaign to raise awareness about Turkey's fast disappearing nature and wildlife.
The nature conservation society stresses that Tarkan's song calls for everyone to unite to save the environment from extinction, and hopes that this will spur the public to join their campaign.
The traditional Turkish folk-song type track will be released to the public with the Doğa Derneği's magazine's premier issue on sale at the end of July.
