Our mission is to facilitate the use of general aviation to transport endangered species and to promote conservation through education and outreach.
While some might find sea turtles and airplanes an unlikely match, Leslie Weinstein does not. “The little sea turtle -an endangered species- and general aviation -another endangered species- have come together to rescue each other. That’s the way I see it.” Today, Turtles Fly Too has evolved into a full-fledged 501(c)(3) for the purpose of maintaining the ongoing rescue, rehabilitation, research and education efforts for endangered sea turtles.
Our values are fundamental to the success of our organization.
Be collaborative, kind and respectful
Accept and take responsibility
Safely undertake all activities
Innovate and take initiative
Communicate clearly & constructively
