Endangered Sea Turtles Need Pilots, Planes

Stranded Reptiles Need A Ride To Rescue Facilities

There is an immediate need to fly sea turtles that have stranded themselves on the east coast. They need to be flown to rescue facilities in the southeast. The endangered turtles are experiencing a "state of emergency" due to recent cold temperatures and strong onshore winds in the northeast. More than 150 endangered sea turtles were stranded on Cape Cod alone, and many are suffering from hypothermia.

The non-profit New England Aquarium is working to stabilize as many sea turtles as possible but lacks resources to house this unprecedented number. There is immediate need to fly sea turtles to other facilities, including the Georgia Sea Turtle Center, the South Carolina Aquarium, and to other facilities in Florida and North Carolina.

The Archie Carr Center for Sea Turtle Research is appealing to all pilots and aircraft owners for help. Leslie Weinstein with the center and the owner of the aviation fastener company True-Lock LLC, ask that you get in touch at 208-375-4846, or Leslie@True-Lock.com. "As an aviation company this is one of our programs showcasing the importance of general aviation to communities," Weinstein said in an email.
