Baykeeper regularly partners with LightHawk Conservation Flying to conduct aerial patrols. From aboard a small plane, we can monitor and document the Bay from above, complementing our patrols from the water with some extra perspective.
On aerial patrol in January and February, Baykeeper monitored several sites in the Bay and Delta, including industrial facilities and oil refineries that we regularly investigate for pollution.
Below is an overhead shot of the Phillips 66 oil refinery in Rodeo captured by Baykeeper volunteer photographer Robb Most. Baykeeper is opposing the refinery's new expansion plans.
