Terri the turtle washed up in Jersey 12 days ago, cold and startled.
She's being looked after by New Age Vets who say they now need to raise £22,000 to send her by private jet to Gran Canaria.
The cold water reptile needs to live in warm waters, and is thought to have been thrown significantly off course due to storms.
Vet Peter Haworth says the private jet is needed for various reasons, including the correct air pressure and temperature for the animal.
Terri the turtle has touched down in her new home Gran Canaria, after being flown there on a jet owned by Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson.
Terri the turtle is battling the odds to survive, vets have said they didn't think she would survive when she was washed up in Jersey.
