Conservation Missions

Aircraft play a crucial role in the conservation of wildlife in Africa. Aircraft provide a unique bird's eye view and the use of light aircraft is a cost and time efficient way to cover large distances in vast landscapes, especially where there are no roads or access from the ground is limited, which is very often the case in wildlife areas.

Mission
Objectives

Anti-poaching and surveillance
We carry out flights to detect poachers, illegal camps, illegal cattle grazing and other illicit activities in order to direct the deployment of ranger teams on the ground.

Mitigate human wildlife conflict

We deploy our aircraft to help redirect wildlife that is in close proximity to local communities and avoid conflict.

Ecological monitoring and research

We collect data on ecosystems and wildlife populations to help support their protection and restoration.

Protected area management & creation
We conduct flights to support management actions for wildlife areas and to help develop long-term strategies.
