Born in 1984, she graduated from DEÜ Law Faculty. After actively practicing law for twelve years, she moved to Foça, İzmir and co-founded the Vegan Farm with Yusuf Unay. She practices farming that is in line with vegan and ecological principles, and provides a sanctuary for birds rescued from exploitation.
When Elif Telciler and Yusuf Unay took over an olive grove in Izmir, Foça in February 2020 they started to apply vegan and ecological principles. With the arrival of the first birds in November 2020, the farm started its activities as a bird farm sanctuary for birds saved from exploitation. Currently the sanctuary houses one quail, about 50 chickens, roosters, turkeys, geese and five dogs.
