ANTALYA, TURKIYE - SEPTEMBER 21: A caretta caretta is observed during a diving near Liman region in Kas district of in Antalya, Turkiye on September 21, 2021. Sea turtles, an ancient species that appeared 110 million years ago, are still critically endangered due to increasing environmental pollution despite all conservation efforts. Anadolu Agency photojournalists captured sea turtles, whose life is turning into an increasingly dangerous journey because of environmental pollution and tracked their challenging life journey for 4 months. The work was created with data collected over two years from coastal areas in Turkiyeâs Mugla, Hatay, Adana, Antalya, Istanbul, and Rize provinces. The visuals of the project were recorded during four months of shooting in the nesting area of sea turtles between the Iztuzu coast in western Mugla province and the Samandag coast in southern Hatay province. Out of seven species of sea turtles across the world, only the Caretta caretta or loggerhead sea turtles and green sea turtles nest along Turkiye's Mediterranean coast.
