Managing wildlife hazards in busy airport environments is complex, requiring not just aviation expertise, but an understanding of wildlife and how to manage it.
This course will cover the fundamentals of developing a Wildlife Management Programme. Based on international standards, tried and tested techniques from years of experience, and national regulations, it will outline the steps needed to develop a Wildlife Management Programme that specifically addresses your unique wildlife issues and plans the most appropriate course of action.
