Abstract

In Halfeti, steppe life prevails framed by natural living of rocks and water. You can observe animals living in the steppe, rocks and river. The Euphrates flows along the rocks bordering Halfeti. You can see rare animals living harmoniously in the environment of rocks and water. Most of Halfeti has been submerged in water by the Birecik Dam, which was built in 2001 between Birecik and Halfeti. Consequently, many inhabitants of Halfeti had to migrate or move to new settlements.
