Webinar on Geese and Risks to Air Safety

Webinar on Geese and Risks to Air Safety

The webinar Geese and Risks to Air safety took place on on Tuesday 10 January 2023.

This webinar focused on the problems of increasing goose populations and risks to air safety in and around selected airports in Europe. This problem is a concern raised in the AEWA/EGMP International Single Species Management Plans for the Barnacle Goose and Greylag Goose, respectively.

The purpose of the webinar was to shed light on the issues faced in three selected airports in the EGMP range, where geese cause increasing risks. Airport authorities will inform about their problems, handling of risks and challenges. The event also aimed to support sharing of experiences and a discussion about effective measures to reduce risks of colissions.

The webinar was chaired by Professor Jesper Madsen, Head of EGMP Data Centre based at Aarhus University.
