Programs: LightHawk's environmental programs are organized along geographic boundaries: the Pacific Northwest, Pacific Southwest, the Rocky Mountains, and Mesoamerica; we also fly limited missions east of the Rockies and in the Caribbean. The issues we address through our flights range, literally, from flamingos to nuclear power, supporting efforts focused on forests, coastal and ocean conditions, deserts and grasslands, and urban and industrial issues. Our partners range from small community organizations with no paid staff to U.S. and foreign government agencies and international NGOs. Our field staff works with our partners to educate and support them on the often complex logistics and preparation required to produce safe, high quality flights with maximum impact.The diverse types of missions we fly include guided educational flights for passengers who may be local villager leaders or members of Congress; media flights for reporters, photographers and filmmakers working on environmental stories; technical flights to support scientists working on habitat and species surveys; and surveillance flights that help document environmental crimes and land use conditions.

I have followed Lighthawk for many years and continue to be impressed with the caliber of the volunteers and the real value of the work they do. A picture may be worth a thousand words, but actually seeing the earth from the air and getting perspective on the environment is priceless. I can't think of a more impactful way to deliver a message.
