JFK flights were delayed because of turtles taking over the runway
Turtles Delay Flights At JFK Airport With Mating Ritual
Diamond terrapins love the JFK Airport runways. Tens of thousands of terrapins live in Jamaica Bay. This is the time of year some of them wind up on the runway at Kennedy Airport. They make their way out of Jamaica Bay in search of place to lay their eggs. The sandy area of the outskirts of the runway right next to the water has proven a popular spot.

Don't Let Congress Dismantle the Endangered Species Act

It has prevented 99 percent of the species under its care from going extinct, including America's symbol, the Bald Eagle. We should allow this critical law to continue to protect wildlife for future generations, not undermine it.
