National Statistics

Snowy owls may pose hazards to aircraft.

WS biologists provide technical (information) or direct management assistance, which can result in a reduction, suppression, or prevention of wildlife hazards. At many "Part 139"-certificated airports (which serve scheduled and unscheduled air carrier aircraft with more than 9 seats), non-certificated airports, and military airbases, this WS assistance resulted in a reduction, suppression, or prevention of hazardous conditions caused by wildlife. These numbered 635 (71%) of the 890 airports where some assistance was provided in FY 17.
