LightHawk's conservation projects are rooted in collaboration. Each year, we work with the most effective conservation partners to make a difference for people and nature. (Explore our partnerships in the U.S. and Canada and Mexico and Central America)
LightHawk staff, volunteer pilots, and partners work together to create flight plans that yield new scientific understanding, inspiring aerial photographs, and compelling personal experiences of the landscape - none of which would be possible from the ground.
LightHawk flies with conservation groups, agencies, universities, businesses, and individuals who need a big picture view in order gain new understanding and increase awareness. Our partners range from small, local groups run by volunteers to the conservation organizations on the back of the cereal box. The following is a sampling of LightHawk's frequent fliers.
