CONSERVANCY'S "Project CARE"
Since its first antipoaching aircraft was put into operation in Zimbabwe in 1990,
its aircraft have helped save human lives by providing air ambulance service to
carry wounded and injured game scouts, the occasional injured tourist and injured
and sick villagers from the bush to hospitals. Wilderness Conservancy has brought
its experience home and is rendering humanitarian (healthcare and educational)
services to indigent people in Baja California, Mexico. For a report on the projects

To provide free air transportation for infants, children, adults
and senior citizens who are in need of critical medical care but who cannot afford
commercial air transport to bring them to their medical destination.
To provide free air transportation and free health care services (doctors, dentists, nurses, etc.) to those who cannot afford them yet whose medical/dental condition
or location precludes transportation to a healthcare facility - i.e., the rendition
of health care services on the site of the one/s in need. This type of service
brings the health care provider to the person or village on an "as needed" basis
or on a regular basis, as may be required;
To grant the wish of terminally ill children, adults or senior citizens that would like to experience flight in aircraft.
