LightHawk is a non-profit conservation organization dedicated to the documentation of international environmental management from a birds-eye view. Founded in 1979 by Michael Stewart, LightHawk's novel approach to conservation now employs the services of over 150 volunteer airplane pilots. LightHawk's volunteer pilots fly politicians, decision-makers, activists and scientists over natural areas slated for development or exploitation, and provide passengers with an unprecedented large-scale view of the activities affecting the ecosystems below. LightHawk's home on the web includes a flight schedule of upcoming missions in the Western Hemisphere, a superb collection of aerial photographs from past fly-over sites, hyperlinks to over 30 conservation organizations, and a pilot's page, where several pilots are highlighted and instructions are provided for interested potential pilots. Given the current rapid state of deterioration of the earth's wild areas, this unusual organization's site is worth the visit ... and their photographed perspectives worth the gain in altitude.
