Tanya Drapeau, Site Manager (Avisure Pty Ltd.) is presenting some wildlife harassment techniques they use:

  • Pyrotechnics : has a startling effect, visually and audibly. These can vary to target specific species
  • Stock whips: the whipping action is a way to frighten wildlife away due to the cracking sounds
  • Visual deterrents: Lasers, spotlights, etc. These are used to direct wildlife away from the danger zone and into a safer area
  • Trained predators: Using predators to mitigate the presence of other wildlife near the aerodrome. These include border collies, falcons, etc.
