Since 2012, Great Turtle Kayak Tours has been delivering award-winning kayak and SUP tours to people seeking a more active and outdoor vacation experience in northern Michigan. As a company, we are an active member of the Great Lakes Business Network, a network of business leaders committed to protecting the Great Lakes—people who believe that the risks posed by an oil pipeline called Line 5 in the Straits of Mackinac are greater than the benefits. And by offering our employees opportunities to give & volunteer and our customers opportunities to translate their tour experience into advocacy, we're living up to our founding principles: caring for the earth, for people, and for the future.

The Environment in Crisis: Big Oil on Native Lands
Native American values, treaties, land and water are being threatened by big oil. In the Dakotas fracking and pipelines have decimated once pristine landscapes, causing toxic damage , destroying ancestral burial grounds and now threatening drinking water. This campaign aims to bring world-wide attention to this environmental and cultural crisis through a feature film: A Different American Dream, a series of videos and a robust engagement campaign focused on supporting local grassroots programs.
Build Rescue Boats in Flood Prone Communities
The community of Banaba is struck by flooding several times each year. Residents of this small community just outside Manila live in constant fear of heavy rains which cause rivers to quickly burst their banks. They've organised themselves and are ready to respond when the rains come. But without rescue boats to use during flooding, many lives could be lost.
Making profitable the boat of Glenn Paige School
The project will provide the boat with an appropriate engine of 75 horse-power, petrol reserve and life vest.
Fund Jamaican Farmers in Climate-Smart Aquaponics
Climate change in Jamaica is forcing small-scale food producers out of business, leading to rising unemployment, poverty and food insecurity. INMED's Financing for Climate-Smart Agriculture program helps resolve this crisis by empowering struggling farmers, women, youth and people with disabilities to start aquaponics (hydroponics/fish farming) enterprises. This program will provide access to financing, aquaponics technology, training, technical assistance and secure markets.
