  • Collecting, maintaining, and disseminating relevant bird strike data and bird strike research
  • Advertising wildlife mitigation training programs, management policies, and operational plans
  • Bridging the gap between the scientific community and stakeholders, including the general public, through effective communication, i.e. (press releases, public forums, how-to handbooks, web site, newsletters )
  • Certifying Qualified Wildlife Biologists and making the list of Qualified Wildlife Biologists available on this website
