Storm warning issued for Marmara, Aegean regions

The Turkish State Meteorology Service (MGM) has issued a yellow-code warning for six provinces, including Balıkesir, Çanakkale, Edirne, İzmir, Kırklareli, and Tekirdağ, as strong winds, known as lodos, are expected to sweep through the Marmara and Aegean regions of Türkiye, bringing the possibility of mud showers due to dust transport.

Charred forest cover of Marmaris rejuvenating itself

Around 4,392 hectares of forest cover that was reduced to ashes following massive wildfires in the southwestern province of Muğla's Marmaris district last year is now turning green again with the help of an experimental method in which burned trees were not cut down but left to the natural cycle of the ecosystem.

Türkiye needs to invest more in marinas to boost capacity

Türkiye needs to invest more in building additional marinas along its coasts as insufficient capacity leads to a spike in the cost of mooring boats, according to the representatives from the industry.

The total capacity of around 25 to 30 marinas in Türkiye is around 6,500 berths, said Murat Bekiroğlu, the president of the Yacht and Boat Industry Association (YATED).
