Bird and other wildlife strikes to aircraft annually cause well
over $600 million in damage to U.S. civil and military aviation.
These strikes put the lives of aircraft crew members and their
passengers at risk. The Bird Strike Committee says on its website
that over 219 people have been killed worldwide as a result of
wildlife strikes since 1988. Within the United States there was no
one forum where information or concerns dealing with this problem
could be addressed.
Bird Strike Committee USA was formed in 1991 to facilitate the
exchange of information, promote the collection and analysis of
accurate wildlife strike data, promote the development of new
technologies for reducing wildlife hazards, promote professionalism
in wildlife management programs on airports through training and
advocacy of high standards of conduct for airport biologists and
bird patrol personnel, and be a liaison to similar organizations in
