Sometimes a bird’s-eye view makes all the difference. Combining a love of flight with a passion for wild places, a growing number of pilots fly volunteer missions over vibrant and threatened lands. Part one of this film introduces you to pilots who devote their time off to fly above the Mesoamerican isthmus with LightHawk, a conservation aviation organization. You’re in the co-pilot’s seat on a fascinating journey to Costa Rica, where you visit the famed sea turtle refuge Tortuguero National Park.
