Conservation Flying Company LightHawk Helps Brookfield Zoo Relocate North American River Otter

On Monday July 9 Kate, a North American river otter born at Brookfield Zoo, received a first-class trip to Calgary Zoo thanks to the conservation flying company LightHawk. The nonprofit aims to accelerate conservation through flight. A huge thanks goes to Pilot Chuck Yanke, a LightHawk volunteer who generously donated his plane and time to fly Kate to Canada. Accompanying Yanke was Julie Tromblay, also a LightHawk volunteer who was the copilot.
