In this paper, the complaints and expectations of people living around the Neopolis wetland, which is an endangered area with international importance in Famagusta, Cyprus, in terms of the present situation of the wetland. For this purpose, 88 people (self-employed, university students over 18 years of age, etc.) who live in the three streets and one main street parallel to the wetland were included in the working group. Open-ended questions were asked to the participants as required by qualitative research approaches. According to the research findings, it is seen that people have complaints about the present situation of the wetland and have expectations from the authorities and residents living there about its protection. It is observed that participants do not have sufficient awareness about the importance, protection and usage of the wetlands. In summary, it is found out that they required education about the environment and the wetland.
