Bird Strike Association of Canada

Bird Strike Canada Seminar Series

We are pleased to announce our new seminar series that will bring speakers, many of whom you would never hear at a bird strike conference, right to your office, which for most of us these days is our living room. Given that we had to cancel the 2020 Canadian Bird Strike Conference and that most airport and airline personnel would not be able to attend a 2021 conference even if one were held due to the financial devastation caused to the industry by Covid, this seminar series should be just the tonic for those of us feeling isolated in our profession and hungry for outside stimulation. With two speakers bringing you up-to-date information each month (almost), you can get a conference worth of talks and information at a small fraction of the cost. We are excited about this initiative and think you will be too.

The May 2021 session is on Advances in Technology for Airport Wildlife Management

Our presenters are Dr. John Swaddle from William and Mary University in Williamsburg, Virginia who will speak on Using a Sonic Net to displace birds from target areas: applications to reduce bird-strike. He will be presenting his research that goes beyond his current publications on the topic. Dr. Tim Nohara and Sara Handrigan will be presenting their talk entitled: Avian radar use for wildlife control at two Canadian airports, YVR and YYZ. Hopefully we will get a look at how these radars are actually being used at two major airports in Canada.

Bird Strike Canada

We believe that the key to reduce damaging wildlife strikes to aircraft in Canada is by building a community of  professionals to exchange ideas, experiences and co-operative efforts to better manage wildlife at all Canadian airports.  It is through the ecological management of wildlife and the application of best practices that we will be successful in reducing strikes to aircraft. In pursuing these beliefs, we influence all aspects of airport wildlife management in Canada.

The Bird Strike Association of Canada (BSAC or Bird Strike Canada) is a leader in airport wildlife strike prevention. Through dialogue with the industry, Bird Strike Canada seeks and advances innovative ideas in aviation safety. Our mandate includes setting standards and addressing industry issues by formulating effective strategies and implementing change through regulatory means. Birdstrike  Canada is “The Canadian Voice of Wildlife Strike Prevention.”

The Bird Strike Canada is recognized by Transport Canada as Canada’s National Bird Strike Committee organized under the guidelines set by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
