100% of LightHawk’s funding comes from generous people and supportive foundations. Our work doesn’t happen without your help.

Conservation change takes a long time – often years. 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.

LightHawk provides the big picture view which informs and inspires the conservation of land, rivers, coastlines, and wildlife across the continent.

Your gift makes flight 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 goes even farther because of the generous donation of flight by LightHawk’s talented and dedicated volunteer pilots.
