I've seen this photo of an owl strangled by a sky lantern. Is this your event?
This specific image of an owl being trapped inside a lantern is a viral photo from an irresponsible lantern launch in the United Kingdom. This company and event is totally unassociated with us, but their disregard and lack of safety standards are unfairly attributed to lantern event companies in the United States.
Our sky lanterns simply contain rice paper, bamboo, and string! Our lanterns do not contain plastic or metal like the photo indicates. We have never ever had an animal hurt or endangered by our lantern launches.
