Turkey’s wildlife documented in series
ANTALYA – Doğan News Agency
DHA PhotosThe unknown wildlife of Anatolia will come to screen with a documentary series titled “‘Henüz Çok Geç Değil” (It’s Not Too Late Yet).
The first three episodes of the series will feature Sarıkamış’s wolves and bears, the migration of pearl mullets in Lake Van and the small cultures of Beypazarı.
The project coordinator of the documentary is Hüseyin Çağlar İnce, while its director is Kenan Özer and its director of photography is Doruk Engin.
The documentary team, known for “Kayıp Masallar” (Lost Tales) of Atlas Magazine, won the TRT Documentary Award in 2012 for their film “Yarı İnsan, Yarı Yılan” (Half Human, Half Snake) featuring the Şahmaran (Basilisk) legend.
The team has been on the roads of Anatolia to pursue the country’s living creatures whose life spaces are growing smaller every day, following their traces.
İnce said the Anatolian is home to many endemic plants and animal species thanks to its habitat. She added that the documentary aims to raise awareness for the protection of this unique natural heritage.
The documentary film will be aired soon in Turkey’s national TV channel, TRT.
