Our mission is to facilitate the use of general aviation to transport endangered species and to promote conservation through education and outreach.
We engage general aviation pilots who contribute their expertise, aircraft, fuel, and time while leaving a lasting mark on endangered species rescue efforts.
Turtles Fly Too partners with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) and US Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS) to educate students and other non-profit organizations about the importance of general aviation to our society, and specifically, endangered sea turtle rescue operations.
NOAA and other organizations call on Turtles Fly Too to provide air transportation when endangered species are threatened, either through a cold stun event, entanglement, or when an endangered animal is injured. Transport by aircraft instead of ground shortens travel time and therefore reduces stress on these turtles and other endangered species. We invite you to learn more about us and become part of our family.
