Intelligence is not the ability to store information, but to know where to find it.
Avisure recently undertook an audit of #FraportGreece’s wildlife hazard management system (WHMS), which encompasses 12 Greek regional (civilian) airports: Corfu, Kavala, Kefalonia, Kos, Mitilini, Mykonos, Rhodes, Samos, Santorini, Skiathos, Thessaloniki and Zakynthos.
Charlotte Kok, Avisure environmental scientist and team leader, is on the cusp of celebrating two years with the company. Malaysian-born to Chinese parents, she explains her real name is Xiang Ning Kok, her first name being pronounced ‘Sheeyang’. ‘It doesn’t really have a meaning, my parents just thought it had a nice sound.’
The first in a series of articles profiling industry personnel proactively managing wildlife hazards. Davy Semal (pictured on the right), currently Cairns Airport aerodrome operations manager, has been with the airport for two years.
For the past nine years, Avisure has been contracted to Vancouver International Airport (YVR), Canada’s second busiest airport, to safely deliver the airport’s wildlife management program. YVR’s location on Sea Island in the Fraser River Delta make it essential for the airport to lead a comprehensive 24/7 wildlife program as the surrounding marshes, mudflats and agricultural habitats on and around the delta attract millions of shorebirds, waterfowl, and gulls each year.
