LightHawk provides new ways to study animals, understand their habitat and overcome the obstacles they face to survive. 

From 1,000 feet up, the land reveals the most likely places where animals roam, feed, and raise their young. This perspective also makes clear where to focus efforts to protect valuable habitat. Aerial telemetry and surveys helped biologists to track black bears, scarlet macaws, sharks, steelhead and other wildlife.

LightHawk volunteer pilots also help endangered and threatened species by donating wildlife survival flights to move valuable individuals for breeding, education and release into the wild.
