Our Partners

LightHawk's conservation programs depend on collaboration. Each year, we work with over 150 conservation partners to make a difference for the health of the planet. (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 of environmental conditions and spread awareness about conservation issues. Our partners range from small, local groups run by volunteers to the largest international conservation organizations. The following is a sampling of LightHawk's frequent fliers.
