The Wider Image: Saving Turkey's turtles from builders and boats
June Haimoff first stumbled across a loggerhead turtle on Turkey's southern coast more than 30 years ago. It was a chance encounter that changed her life and the future of the beach she was wandering along. Already beguiled by the 4 km (2.5 mile) stretch of sand, which forms a natural barrier between the Mediterranean Sea and the reed-lined freshwater inlets of the Dalyan river, she set up home there in the 1980s and soon fell in love with the turtles. Three decades later the 95-year-old Englishwoman still has a shed overlooking Iztuzu beach, which she has campaigned to protect from developers and to preserve as a natural environment where the threatened turtles can breed. "When I first saw a sea turtle laying eggs, I watched without moving. I remember tears in my eyes," she said. "From that day I started to collect any kind of information about them that I could."

A loggerhead sea turtle lays eggs on the beach in Regencia village
A loggerhead sea turtle (Caretta caretta) lays her eggs on the beach, about 4 kilometers from the mouth of Rio Doce in Regencia village, where, according to Brazil's environmental regulator IBAMA, the river is about to be flooded with mud after a dam, owned by Vale SA and BHP Billiton Ltd burst, in Brazil November 20, 2015. The collapse of two dams at a Brazilian mine has cut off drinking water for quarter of a million people and saturated waterways downstream with dense orange sediment that could wreck the ecosystem for years to come. Nine people were killed, 19 are still listed as missing and 500 people were displaced from their homes when the dams burst at an iron ore mine in southeasternBrazil on November 5. Scientists say the sediment, which may contain chemicals used by the mine to reduce iron ore impurities, could alter the course of streams as they harden, reduce oxygen levels in the water and diminish the fertility of riverbanks and farmland where floodwater passed. According to IBAMA's forecast, the sediment will reach the sea in Espirito Santo state coast this weekend. REUTERS/Ricardo Moraes
