ABSTRACT
Ölüdeniz is a town of Fethiye, the district of Mugla. It is 128 km. away from Mugla and 12 km. away from Fethiye. The region which is located within the boundaries of Kumburnu and Belcegiz beaches has been declared as a Natural Park in 1983. Ölüdeniz is an important center for many domestic and foreign tourists to visit in the tourism season. The purpose of this study was to investigate the awareness of the domestic tourists on the preservation status. In this study, 100 questionnaires were completed by participants in Ölüdeniz. The study was carried out in July, 2013. The survey questions were related to the person’s individual characteristics, the level of awareness of conservation status. According to the results of the survey, it is revealed that the majority of domestic tourists come to Ölüdeniz just to visit the area; they are not aware of any preservation status, and also some domestic tourists have never been to Fethiye and a lot of places around Fethiye. Lastly, considering the distribution of regional visitors from across the country, the results showed a homogeneous distribution. According to the results, it is determined that, the domestic tourists have not so much information especially about the preservation status, and thus some solutions are presented in order to increase domastic tourists level of awareness on the conservation status and levels of awareness.
