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 June 2021 session is on Coyotes
Our presenters are Brendan Carswell and Roy Rea from the University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George who will speak on their work with camera traps and how they can be used to predict mammal strikes at airports. Dr. Colleen Cassady St. Clair from the University of Alberta in Edmonton will then present her talk entitled: Fostering coexistence over conflict with urban coyotes through evidence-based methods. Coyotes are a significant problem at most airports in Canada and the information presented in these talks should help us manage them more effectively.

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).
