Technical Guidance

The goal of this guidebook is to present the importance of the airport  environment. Birds and mammals occur on airport property for a variety of reasons, however, they are usually attracted by such essentials to life as food, water and shelter, often to be found on the restricted area or in the vicinity of an airport.

Modifications to the airport environment can remove or decrease the attractiveness of an airport to birds and mammals, thus eliminating a large part of the hazard.

Environment management is integral to wilfife control as it offers effective long-term measures for reducing the numbers of birds and mammals that will come to an airport.
