Wildlife hazard management plans


You do not have a Wildlife Hazard Management Plan (WHMP), your WHMP requires updating, your WHMP does not comply to regulatory requirements, or your WHMP is not adequately addressing issues relating to monitoring and managing wildlife, increasing wildlife populations, increasing air traffic, or potential liability associated with wildlife strikes.  


Prepare a WHMP that addresses your wildlife hazards and how to manage them.

Required by many civil aviation safety authorities around the world, and recommend by ICAO and other international aviation bodies, your WHMP documents your wildlife issues and details how you manage them. It is the primary supporting document for your Wildlife Hazard Management Program.

Avisure can prepare a WHMP that reflect your wildlife hazards and risks. Our WHMPs are compliant with regulatory requirements and include:

  • A description of the airport’s strategy for wildlife hazard reduction
  • A review and analysis of strike events and trends
  • A risk assessment that identifies high and moderate risk species and locations
  • Roles and responsibilities
  • Key performance indicators and program targets
  • How the airport communicates with local planning authorities to manage off-airport wildlife hazards
  • Species action plans for high risk species
  • Standard operating procedures relating to:
  • Detection:
    • wildlife patrols and inspections
  • Monitoring:
    • wildlife counts
    • flying-fox counts
    • fence inspections
  • Risk assessment and analysis
    • risk assessment
    • data analysis and management
  • Reporting and communication
    • strike reporting (including handling wildlife and their remains)
    • wildlife hazard notifications
  • Mitigation
    • wildlife dispersal (including firearms safety)
    • habitat (passive) management
    • vertebrate pest management
    • flying-fox management
    • macropod management
    • overabundant wildlife management


Avisure WHMPs ensure:

  • all regulatory and legislative requirements are addressed
  • hazard management actions are clearly defined in easy to use procedures and policies
  • wildlife risks are accurately assessed and accompanied by realistic mitigation measures
  • the roles and responsibilities of your wildlife hazard management team are clear and relevant to your operations.
