Bird Strike Canada Seminar Series 3: 2023

Conference style talks delivered to you

Because Covid continues resulting in the cancellation of Bird Strike conferences, BSAC is continuing the popular seminar series begun in January 2021.

These seminars will also be of interest to those of you who are unable to attend conferences even without the pandemic and will allow us to engage speakers who would not travel to a conference because their main interest may not be airport wildlife management. Nevertheless their expertise is of great interest and value to those of us engaged in the field of aircraft-wildlife hazard mitigation.

In order to enable many more to attend and to avoid the trouble it caused many of you having to pay a small fee for the seminars (which did not even cover our cost) we are happy to inform you that the new seminar series will be free to attend and to watch the taped recordings..

Reminisces of Bird Strike Committees Past and Present

Tuesday, 20 June 20th

13:00 ADT; 12:00 EDT; 11:00 CDT; 10:00 MDT; 09:00 PDT

We have assembled a panel of biologists who have been involved with bird strike committees and research in Canada for over 50 years to have an informal conversation about the people involved and the makings of Canada’s legacy in the field of airport wildlife hazard management. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sit in with three Bruce MacKinnon award winners who have been part of the rich history that has led to the Bird Strike Association of Canada.
