Aviation Is Making A Difference
Turtles Fly, Too
Turtles Fly Too’s mission is to coordinate and facilitate general aviation involvement in large scale stranded sea turtle relocation efforts. We coordinate with general aviation pilots to donate time, aircraft, fuel, and labor while leaving a lasting mark on endangered species rescue efforts.
Our other mission is to educate students and other non-profit organizations about the importance of general aviation to our society and sea turtle rescue operations. Participants are welcomed to explore a number of magnificently preserved specimens generously gifted by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) while they learn about sea turtle migration patterns, what puts them at risk for stranding, and how to conserve their species.
Sea turtles face ever-increasing threats from a staggering array of sources as human populations grow, coastal habitats are developed, and marine habitats are degraded. Only through research can we hope to obtain the information necessary to counteract these threats and ensure the survival of these magnificent creatures.
Turtles Fly Too needs donations to support their research, education, and conservation programs.
