Why Give

Protecting land and water for people and nature takes a full understanding of the big picture. In some cases this means collecting scientific data or tracking change over time. In other cases it means showing people the true condition of the landscape so that they take a personal interest or capturing photos that inspire.

For 40 years, LightHawk has provided this big picture view to inform and inspire the conservation of land, rivers, coastlines, and wildlife across North and Central America. Your support makes it possible for scientists, decision-makers, community leaders, journalists, and photographers to see the Earth in a new way, and when they return to the ground, our passengers apply what they've learned from the aerial view to effective on-the-ground solutions.

Your gift makes it possible for LightHawk to provide the aerial view to partner groups and carefully selected passengers. And your gift goes even farther because of the generous donation of flight by LightHawk’s talented and dedicated volunteer pilots.

Thank you for making it possible for conservation to take flight. Your support makes a difference!
