Providing a bird's-eye view of potential environmental threats:
SouthWings collaborates with a range of effective conservation and community partners to increase collective, positive impact on environmental issues. Through the power of a first-hand aerial perspective, SouthWings provides an unparalleled way for funders, partners, and other key decision-makers to understand the most urgent environmental challenges in the Southeast.
At the heart of our work is the commitment of SouthWings’ all-volunteer pilot corps, collectively contributing hundreds of hours of time and resources each year to provide a unique perspective on environmental issues that would otherwise not be possible.
Based in Asheville, these volunteer pilots cover the entire Southeast and some Gulf states, and have spotted problems like dangerous algae blooms and other irregularities in rivers and lakes. But flying isn't cheap, so if you've got some extra cash handy, show them some love.
