Wildlife in Airport Environments

Preventing Animal–Aircraft Collisions through Science-Based Management

A comprehensive overview of wildlife issues facing airports and how to minimize conflicts.

Winner of the NWRC Publication Award of the National Wildlife Research Center

The pilot watches the instrument panel and prepares for touchdown—a routine landing until a burst of birds, a coyote, or a herd of deer crosses the runway! Every year, pilots experience this tension and many aircraft come into direct contact with birds and other wildlife, resulting in more than one billion dollars in damage annually. The United States Federal Aviation Administration has recorded a rise in these incidents over the past decade due to the combined effects of more reporting, rebounding wildlife populations, and an increased number of flights. Wildlife in Airport Environments tackles the issue of what to do about encounters with wildlife in and around airports—from rural, small-craft airparks to major international hubs.

Whether the problem is birds or bats in the flight path or a moose on the runway, the authors provide a thorough overview of the science behind wildlife management at airports. This well-written, carefully documented volume presents a clear synthesis for researchers, wildlife managers, and airport professionals. The book belongs in the hands of all those charged with minimizing the risks that wildlife pose to air travel.

Wildlife in Airport Environments is the first book in the series Wildlife Management and Conservation and is published in association with The Wildlife Society.

Reviews

"The authors did an outstanding job in collecting, analyzing, and organizing current best management practices for aviation wildlife management. I recommend Wildlife in Airport Environments to wildlife professionals and airport managers as the basis for science-based wildlife control programs."

- Nick Atwell - Animal Behaviour

"I believe that the book should be read by airport managers, wildlife damage specialists, and wildlife professionals and students in general."

- Russ Reidinger - Journal of Wildlife Management

"If a book like this had been available some years ago when I started my research on wildlife strikes as a human–wildlife conflict issue, it would have saved me a lot of time"

- Cecilia Soldatini - Journal of Field Ornithology
