What People Say

“LightHawk flights help put what we do in context. When you’re working on a restoration project, you go to one little spot and you don’t see how that area fits with the rest of the wetland. With the aerial perspective, you see the whole picture.” Jeff Benoit, Executive Director, Restore America’s Estuaries

"We covered so much ground in so little time, that there is no way we would have been able to see so much…and capture so much video and images without LightHawk's support. Thank you LightHawk, you are a tremendous asset to the conservation community!" Dr. Rachel Graham, Conservation Scientist, Wildlife Conservation Society

“As a community based conservation organization in Belize, we struggle to find the resources to manage the marine protected area and natural resources entrusted to us. The partnership with LightHawk gives us the opportunity to advance our knowledge of one of the most important and endangered inhabitants of the sanctuary - the West Indian manatee. Without LightHawk as a partner, we would not be able to achieve this. LightHawk provides an excellent service, with enthusiastic pilots willing to make the extra effort to ensure the aerial surveys are as effective as possible so that we have the information needed to conserve endangered species.” Zoe Walker, Wildtracks

“This work could not have been accomplished without a staggering expenditure of time and effort on the ground. LightHawk flights enable me to complete in a morning what would take days of driving.” Michael Downey, Montana Land Reliance

“From the air, it all starts to make sense. Parcels of seemingly fragmented land miraculously stitch together. With the help of LightHawk, we are able to see the Colorado River Delta as a whole. While our projects cover many parts of this region, it is from the air that their connections are truly understood.” Francisco Zamora Arroyo, Director of Sonoran Institute’s Gulf Legacy Program
