GlobalGiving Summer 2013 Report

Dear GlobalGiving Supporters,

With this summer report we have come to the end of our project. With your generous support, we as YADA Foundation and Nature Conservation Centre have progressed to fulfill our mission in Koycegiz to save the endemic Sweetgum Forest. However, it doesn’t mean that we are terminating our project. We will continue increasing our efforts to achieve our conservation targets. You can always participate to our work and witness the developments through our web sites: and

In the coming future we will concentrate our efforts on;

  • planting new trees and establishing corridors between existing Sweetgum forest patches;
  • establishing eco-tourism ideas on natural values of Koycegiz to strengthen the links between nature and economy of local people;
  • supporting the environmental education activities in the region;
  • developing a macro level approach to conservation and management of Sweetgums in the whole region;
  • increasing the participation of private sector to the conservation efforts;
  • continuing our efforts to determine the socio-economical and historical studies on Sweetgum based issues;
  • and continue integrating all efforts and maintain the participation of local stakeholders as well as local people.

As YADA Foundation and Nature Conservation Centre we are thankful to your support and we believe we made best use of your support.

Thank you.
