Celebrate Earth Day with Turtles Fly Too!

Greetings, Earthlings. That's right, it's Earth Day. Today is actually the 50th Anniversary of Earth Day. It’s a day to reflect on Mother Nature’s beauty and enjoy our natural environment. So, strap on your face mask, walk outside, take a deep breath, and say good morning world! Turtles Fly Too supports Mother Earth every day with our mission to provide general aviation support for the transport of endangered species. We celebrate with you on this special day. [more]

Flight of Compassion

As the world stands frozen in place to stop the spread of this devastating virus, Turtles Fly Too was requested to fly an emergency rescue mission the last weekend in March. The goal: to return one loggerhead and 16 cold-stunned Kemp’s Ridley sea turtles back to the oceans after recovery. With the global pandemic occurring, this mission was more than what we would normally ask of a Turtle Flier, however, upon receiving the request for assistance it was quickly determined that we needed to respond.

TF2 Represented at Northwest Aviation Show in February

Turtles Fly Two recently attended the 37th Northwest Aviation and Trade Show in Puyallup, Washington. TF2 is receiving increasing requests for TF2 flights on the Pacific coast and it was important to meet and bring awareness of our expanding mission, to recruit pilots and planes located near the Pacific coast for future flights, and to discuss potential operations with our partners at SR3 and USFWS.

F45 - North Palm Beach Fly-In

Before the world went on lockdown, Turtles Fly Too hosted an incredible fly-in event in North Palm Beach, Florida. Fifty pilots and guests from around the US flew in for a day focused on the turtles. Unlike the volunteer pilots’ normal days working on turtle transports, this was a day to say thank you to our Turtle Fliers. [more]

We can’t get the job done without your help.

Turtles Fly Too is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. We rely on donations, underwriting from businesses and philanthropic support. We run a lean operation so that we can focus on rescuing endangered species. Our ability to respond to animal rescues is directly related to support from you. [more]
