LightHawk's mission is to accelerate conservation success through the powerful perspective of flight.

We achieve our mission by mobilizing volunteer pilots, photographers, environmental experts, and storytellers to make images, collect data, inform the public and share their experiences. Our flight campaigns foster dialogue and build consensus, promote informed decision-making, and increase the efficiency and effectiveness of our conservation partners' work.

LightHawk brings coordinated flight campaigns to those working on the ground. We do this through our network of generous supporters and highly skilled volunteer pilots. By making flights available to those working on the ground to protect our natural world, we enable our partners in conservation to quickly and efficiently understand environmental issues and determine the factors needed to promote effective solutions.
