BAJA CALIFORNIA, MEXICO


Baja Aerial Archive

The Baja Aerial Archive provides up-to-date aerial images to individuals and organizations working toward developing an alternative path for growth and development of Baja California while protecting the region’s natural resources and cultural heritage.

The first
Baja Aerial Photo Expedition
was successfully completed from May 19-27, 2013, with support by
LightHawk and WiLDCOAST.

Flying LightHawk’s Cessna 206 with doors off shooting both photos and video, this epic expedition explored the length of Baja’s wild coast from Cabo San Lucas to San Felipe, crisscrossing the Baja Peninsula for more than 3500 nautical miles, or about three times the length of the peninsula in just 9 days.

Aerial photos and video provide a unique perspective of Baja California’s coastal ecosystems and remote islands.

A password-protected archive of digital images is being created that will be managed by the International league of Conservation Photographers (iLCP.com) and available to conservation partners working in the region. Video productions are underway telling the story of the LightHawk expedition showing the wild places still in need of protection.

Fundraising for the project continues and new Founding Partners are welcome. To help with a donation, please contact Fay.Crevoshay@WiLDCOAST.net or call (619) 309-5445 and mention you'd like to support the Baja Aerial Archive Project.
