The local endemic plant growing in the village of Sinep in the Tillo district of Siirt is subject to a fine of 387,141 Turkish lira for those who pick Siirt sage. Assoc.

The Siirt sage (Salvia Siirtica), which has the characteristic of being a local endemic plant grown in the Sinep village of Siirt's Tillo district, is subject to a fine of 387,141 Turkish liras for those who pick it. The plant, which grows in the cemetery of Sinep village, which is affiliated with the Tillo district, is under protection due to its status as a critically endangered species "CR" according to IUCN criteria and its single habitat and population size.

"SIIRT SAGE IS ONE OF THE LOCAL ENDEMIC SPECIES"

Assoc. Prof. Dr. Mehmet Fidan, the head of the Department of Biology at Siirt University, stated that sage is a species belonging to the Lamiaceae family. Fidan, who stated that more than 50 of the approximately 100 species of sage found nationwide are endemic, said, "Some of them are locally endemic. Siirt sage is one of the local endemic species. It is only found in a specific point in Siirt. It blooms for a period of 15-20 days in a year, then closes its flowers and starts to form fruits."

The natural habitat of this plant is a cemetery. We consider it as a species that is naturally protected."
