New Nest for Storks

The “New Nest for Storks” project, which we have started in 2009, with the awareness of our responsibilities towards the environment and future generations and with our sensitivity for protecting the nature and the natural life, continues to nest more storks in its 10th year. With the “New Nest for Storks” Project, which we carry out with ADM and GDZ Elektrik Dağıtım, the companies operating in the electricity distribution field of our group, we build nesting platforms on the poles and conduct insulation works on medium voltage lines regularly every year, before the migration season, in our service regions namely in the provinces of Aydın, Denizli, Muğla, İzmir and Manisa. 

Within the scope of our project, which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2019, we host nearly 13,000 storks each year on special living platforms placed on electric poles. For the sustainability, nesting and census of the stork population, we establish cooperation with Ege (Aegean) University Faculty of Science Department of Biology, Ecosystem Conservation and Nature Lovers Association (EKODOSD) and the 4th Regional Directorate of the Ministry of Forestry and Water Affairs.
