The primary research focus at the WS National Wildlife Research Center’s Ohio Field Station concerns animal-vehicle collisions, especially wildlife hazards to aircraft. Given the populations of bird species hazardous to airports, much field research can be conducted within 60 miles of the field station.WS researchers are dedicated to protecting the flying public, minimizing economic losses to the aviation industry, and preventing wildlife losses by reducing wildlife hazards at and near airports.
