Tarkan in Nature Support

Posted by Hatice Soylu from Istanbul, Turkey

Turkish pop's king and custodian, megastar Tarkan has reposted a share on social media by Turkish nature conservation society Doğa Derneği to raise awareness over the protection of the yelkouan shearwater.

A medium-sized shearwater in the seabird family Procellariidae, during this season they are found in large quantities on the waters of the Bosphorus - the busy waterway which bisects the Turkish mega-city Istanbul.

Tarkan has reposted a video in the hopes that fishing on the Bosphorus is halted during this season to stop the danger to the seabirds caught in fishing nets.

New research has shown the bird to be rarer than initially tbought. Consequently, it was uplisted to near threatened status in 2008 and vulnerable in 2012 on the global red list.
