Due to the increasing problem of stray dogs in Dalyan, the city municipality will implement a program of registration. Many visitors to Dalyan acquire a dog during their stay and simply leave the animal behind when their stay is over. To deal with the increasing number of stray dogs the municipality has developed a new program requiring pet owners to register their dogs at the Belediyah.

Once implemented, the program will allow the municipality to pick up stray dogs and take them to a veterinarian in Fethiye to be either nuetered or spayed, recieve vaccinations, photographed, and ear-tagged. The animal will then be returned to a local animal group in Dalyan and then released. These photographs will be posted on the internet. Dog ownership will be restricted to individuals who are 16 years of age or older. This new registration plan has recieved the full endorsement of Mayor Tufan.

During the winter season the streets become empty and dirty and one of the best examples of this is Sevgi Yolu. The bins in Sevgi Yolu are broken by un-thinking people and then everyone ends up leaving their rubbish all over the streets. We all must be more careful about our trash, for example; we can put our own rubbish into a plastic bag and then throw into the bin. We, as a community should protect the natural beauty of Dalyan and be sure everybody is taking responsibility for it.
