Whale rescue in Fethiye
A commendably brave act of international cooperation in Fethiye, instigated and organised by marine biologist Meryem Tekin, has saved one of the rarest species of whale ever sighted on the Turkish coast. The adult female Sowerby’s Beaked Whale measured just less than 5 metres and weighed approximately one tonne. ‘There have been erroneous reports describing it as a dolphin but when its size and features are understood there is no question of what it is.’ Says Tekin.
