About us: We both live in Norway. After a serious car-accident inn 2003, we started a private initiative for the Sea Turtles in Turkey summer 2006.
2007 we established a Norwegian NGO (Green Power/Save My Babies) – in 2008 we established the Turkish Environmental organization (Caretta YK YD) to legalize our work. We co-operate with Akdenize University in Antalya by prof Mehmet Oz.
