Romeo November: A LightHawk Story

Change your perspective on conservation efforts along the Colorado River by taking flight with Romeo November: A LightHawk Story. This film, coming Feb. 23, shows how groups working to preserve water and wildlife habitats along the Colorado River are making conservation fly. View the film when it’s released on our social media channels or on the LightHawk website.

Support LightHawk

LightHawk is the leading conservation flying organization in the United States. Our flights help preserve land, water and wildlife for future generations. We are supported 100% by people just like you. During this season of giving, give the gift of flight to organizations by supporting our work.

Your gift fuels projects across the country and accelerates conservation outcomes. Our partners are able to accomplish more, in less time thanks to the gift of flight provided by our volunteer pilot community and funded by our supporters. LightHawk makes conservation fly.

Partnering with the leading conservation groups across North America, we design flight campaigns that protect the quality of life of people, animals and all living things.

Once aviation is integrated into a plan, we turn to our corps of 300 pilot donors who make aviation affordable by donating every aspect of flight.

We show conservationists and researchers how flight can augment their work, a concept that many have not considered.

From wolf and red panda transports, to condor tracking and transports, to monitoring wild salmon, we help our nation’s most endangered animals survive.

We fly elected officials, conservation funders, print and visual media, conservation staff and board members to reveal the truth of the environment below.


What we do

We are conservation scientists working with the leading environmental groups on the continent, showing them how aviation can augment their work, in perhaps unexpected ways, and creating flight campaigns that achieve significant conservation outcomes.
