An Investigation of the Studies on the Conservation of Biodiversity in Turkey

Abstract

Considering our world as a whole, prevention of potential hazards and problems is possible by protecting natural resources in harmony with each other and ensuring natural balance. Therefore, conservation of biodiversity and natural resources is primarily a guarantee of the continuity of life on earth and a prerequisite of meeting the sustainable development needs of societies.

Illegal hunting practices that have been performed in Turkey for many years have led to a decrease in the number of wild animals or complete extinction of them. The Land Hunting Law No. 4915, which entered into force in 2003 in accordance with its counterparts in the world, contains provisions on the conservation of wild animals and their habitats against a variety of factors (legal basis). There are international biodiversity conventions to which Turkey is also a party. These conventions are critical in terms of conservation and sustainability of biological diversity. The ‘Noah’s Ark National Biodiversity Database’ implemented in Turkey in accordance with these conventions is one of the critical projects in this field. This project has gained importance for the conservation and sustainability of biodiversity both in the world and Turkey.

The study includes the main headings of Introduction, Materials and Methods, Findings, and Conclusions and Recommendations, and the sub-headings of Protected Areas, Protected Areas in Turkey, and Studies on Biodiversity. The Conclusion and Recommendations section contains recommendations to preserve habitat and species diversity for biodiversity conservation and emphasizes the importance and framework of national and global conventions to date. Solutions were produced through a holistic assessment.
