Lighthawk: Destination Conservation

Volunteers make conservation possible.

Host Willem Lange meets a group of pilots who donate their planes, fuel and time to volunteer on fascinating conservation projects throughout North America.

Our cameras follow LightHawk pilots on missions in northern New Hampshire, California and Mexico.

In New Hampshire we captured the work of NH Audubon as they look to solve the mystery of why Rusty Blackbirds are dying throughout the breeding ground.

In California, LightHawk pilots help track endangered California Condors. They work with biologists to help save the birds from death by lead poisoning.

Our cameras fly along with pilots in northern Mexico, the home of the Cocopah Tribe, where efforts by the Sonoran Institute to restore water to the Colorado River Delta are underway. What was once a thriving ecosystem is now a desert.

Support for Lighthawk: Destination Conservation is provided by The Butler Foundation
