National Geographic, one of the largest non-profit scientific and educational institutions in the world, has decided to shoot more documentaries about Turkey.
“National Geographic has decided to organize its annual donors’ trip to Turkey next year and to shoot more documentaries about Turkey,” said Çağan Şekercioglu, the head of the North Nature Association and a lecturer at Utah University’s Department of Biology.
National Geographic magazine’s committee members recently visited the eastern Anatolian provinces of Kars and Iğdır under a program organized by Şekercioglu.
He said people extending financial and other support to National Geographic would participate in the visit, which is expected to take place in the fall of 2013.
East Anatolia will be included in the program, as well as Istanbul, Cappadocia and the Mediterranean, Şekercioglu said. He said he hoped National Geographic would assume a significant role in promotion of eastern Anatolia.
