Professor Yakup Kaska puts a sea turtle back into her open-sea cage after a medical check at the Sea Turtle Rescue Center (DEKAMER) off the shore of Iztuzu Beach near Dalyan in Mugla province, Turkey, August 25, 2018. Kaska, group president of the Sea Turtle Rescue Center, who first volunteered at Iztuzu in the early days of the conservation project, says the main threats the turtles face are getting struck by boat propellers, swallowing or getting tangled in fishing lines, and eating clear plastic items which they mistake for jellyfish.
