Invited by the Titi Conservation Alliance, Light Hawk small plane and its volunteer pilot George came to help evaluate 8-years long reforestation project by taking areal photos of the region and note the gaps in the Rio Naranjo Biological Corridor.

This largest and oldest volunteer-based environmental aviation organization in North America is involved in thousands of missions each year in order to help environmental organizations in their work. Light Hawk plays a unique and critical role in the environmental movement. Providing perspective from the air, Light Hawk flights give passengers the chance to see for themselves the widespread effects of unsound environmental policies and practices.

The Light Hawk mission in Manuel Antonio was a great success. The passengers, Juan Pablo Aguero from Titi Conservation Alliance, Warren Umana, Aguirre Municipality and Cristian Bogantes, MINAET, had a unique opportunity to see from the air the area they all work in. They took hundreds of photos, which will be geo-referenced with the help of the plane equipment, and shared with all organizations involved in the environmental protection.

We hope that the relationship with Light Hawk will continue in the future and that, thanks to their generosity, we will be able to see positive changes in the reforestation of the Pacific Central Coast.
