Under this plan, we aim to reduce the use of chemical herbicides and pesticides and will continue identifying and removing invasive plants from airport lands, controlling the spread of Japanese knotweed and Giant Hogweed.
We constantly seek to restore natural habitats and we work with our neighbours to minimize any impacts to existing wildlife. YVR is located on a migratory bird path and as a result we have a responsibility to ensure safe aircraft operations while conserving wildlife. We use limited pesticides to reduce bird-attracting insects and the YVR Wildlife Team patrols the airfield year-round, using lethal and non-lethal methods—trained dogs, pyrotechnics, sirens, falconry, trapping and translocation, lasers and stock whips—to scare and disperse hazardous wildlife.
In the Wildlife Team began using new, non-lethal pyrotechnics, with a range of up to 10 times greater than our previous versions. This improved capability has allowed us to manage birds at greater distances, increasing our effectiveness.
This program is a leader in collecting re-sighting data on translocated raptors, providing YVR with a better understanding of risk and raptor ecology. In , there were bird strike incidents, a slight increase over These bird strikes included birds struck by aircraft, a decrease from To maintain safe aircraft operations, the Airport Authority uses lethal control when necessary and in killed birds, an increase from in
