The role of community participation in the control of bird hazards at Entebbe International Airport, Uganda
The location of Entebbe International Airport within the Entebbe Peninsula, a gazetted animal sanctuary and on the flight path of migratory bird species moving to and from Africa, makes it one of the most bird strike-prone airports in the world. However, the airport has successfully adopted a number of measures to prevent bird hazards from occurring. One of the most important methods of bird hazard control involves participation of local communities around the airport. This paper illustrates the different ways in which the airport works with the community to control bird collisions with aircraft at Entebbe International Airport.
