Several example projects are:

  • KBA wrote the Wildlife Hazard Management Plan for Love Field, and has trained their staff on airport wildlife management techniques, including pyrotechnics.  KBA is providing ongoing wildlife monitoring and management support to Love Field.

  • KBA performed a Wildlife Hazard Assessment at Lea County Regional Airport in Hobbs, New Mexico.  KBA made recommendations regarding control of coyote and waterfowl

  • KBA performed an Avian Risk Assessment for a proposed radio tower in north Texas.  KBA made specific recommendations regarding the location of guy wires and marking to reduce the potential threat to birds.

  • KBA performed an Avian Risk assessment for a proposed cell tower in south Texas.  KBA made specific recommendations regarding tower lighting to reduce the potential threat to birds.

  • KBA wrote a Biological Assessment regarding a proposed "take" of the endangered Golden-cheeked Warbler in central Texas.  KBA identified nearby suitable habitat for the bird and set it aside as a mitigation site.
