Taskent Nature Park - Kıbtek Bill - Plea for Help!

Hello all,
Some of you might have noticed my name on the list of debtors to Kıbtek that was announced the other day.

The debt in question belongs to Taskent Nature Park. Some of you may already know electricity cost of just the sea turtle rehabilitation center is around 30,000TL per month, with overall electricity bill of between 40,000-50,000TL per month.

Taskent Nature Park was established in 2014 and had initially invested for a 50kw our own transformer with 7 electricity poles, which was later upgraded to a 200kw transformer. All of those had been paid for in full.

Since 2014, up until April 2020 of this year, our electricity bill was always paid in full with no problems whatsoever. After this time, Covid 19 had affected us as much as, if not more than pretty much eveyone else. After being forced to shut down Taskent Picnic Area and Selvi Restaurant in March right before our peak season, we entered the busiest time with Wildlife Rescue. Our income has come to nil while expenses went sky high. Even though we opened Picnic Area and Restaurant after June, nothing was same and we had to shut down the restaurant again indefinitely because it was losing money and picnic area barely pays for its own expenses.

While we had rescued around 600 wild animals total of 2019, this year we did more than that in the first 6 months only, with a record of 47 animals in one day in May.

To cut the long story short, we had missed just 3 months payments (May, June, July), and somehow we found ourselves in such a list that was announced to media. As a customer of Kıbtek of 6 years, always paying on time, missing just 3 months of payment for obvious reasons, we think what they did was very unfair to us. But it was done that way regardless.

Covid 19 is affecting us, as can be seen by a 3 month overdue electricity bill, but we cannot just simply say we are not accepting any more wild animals (there is nowhere else they can go) when they need help, or we cannot simply call it quits and shut down and allow animals in our care to suffer and die just because we do not have any income.

Taskent Nature Park is a non-profit organization currently with almost zero income now and so much expenses for protection of wildlife and environment. I will personally invest my time and money as much as I am able to but this project doesnt belong to me, it belongs to all of us, so any help you can provide for its sustainability is much appreciated.

Thank you,

Kemal Basat, Director
Taskent Nature Park

I guessed it was the Nature Park as I see on a daily basis all you do to save wildlife. I couldn't agree more Kibtek were very wrong to name you as they did, the shame is on them not you.
Do you have a sterling account I can transfer a donation to.

swift code for is bank is ‎ISBKTRISXXX

Bank should know what to do with these I guess. Let me know if you need anything else.

I've done a test transfer using Revolut, to complete it required the address which I put as:
Taşkent
Girne
Mersin 10
99390
Turkey

Googled it but the post code was wrong (9390).

Some of us prefer to deal in cash. As soon as the weather eases off a bit I will come up to Taskent to make a donation. Can you think about this option, Kemal, so as to make sure the cash ends up in the right place.

With frontalman's comment in mind & looking to the future, how about collection tins/boxes as some of the charities do

That's what I was thinking. There must be a secure way of doing it.

Hey guys, we are working on donation boxes idea, designs are finished and some sample boxes have just arrived.

In about a months time, we should start placing them around, by that time we will be asking for help for suitable locations.

Certainly a more productive road to go down, methinks.

Why not transfer profits from Multimax across to your other company to at least pay utility bills. All tax deductible!

What makes you think that its not being done? All my share of profits from Multimax, all my personal income and my personal wealth is already fully invested in Taskent Nature Park.

An example of the difference between virtue signalling and virtue.
