  • General aviation pilots like Michael Baum volunteer their time and planes for conservation organizations across the United States. This week, Baum will fly two black-footed ferrets to the North Eastern Wisconsin Zoo on his way to EAA AirVenture in Oshkosh. The survival of these endangered black-footed ferrets is critical to the restoration of the American Prairie. Moving these ferrets to the NEW Zoo will help the prairie’s population of black-footed ferrets reach more sustainable numbers. Without the generous pilots who volunteer for LightHawk, these endangered animals would fly in the cargo area of a commercial airline which can be extremely traumatic.Read more about Michael Baum and his generous flight!
