Save Teterboro Airport Birds

Being from New Jersey and paying Port Authority bridge tolls everyday, I was deeply disturbed to learn that starlings are now being killed in the Teterboro Airport, which the Port Authority runs. Upon reading their Wildlife Hazard Management Plan, it appears that all Port Authority airports (Teterboro included) intend to kill all of the birds in the sky indefinitely. There is no discernible end to their euthanasia program (which includes pigeons, starlings, gulls, geese, sparrows, blackbirds, etc.). Also disturbing is the fact that those asking for the permits are the ones who make the money for killing the birds – the US Dept. of Agriculture, since the USDA receives money for providing the extermination services.

We need to explore landscape changes, pyrotechnics, altering plane flight patterns, and other non-lethal means. And, we need an independent assessment to determine whether these methods are effective.  

Any program that relies on killing the birds to solve the problem is not supportable. At the end of the day, we must learn to live with the wildlife around us.

 

To:
Susan Baer, Director, Aviation Department Port Authority of New York and New Jersey
Bill Baroni, Port Authority Deputy Executive Director
Patrick Foye, Executive Director of Port Authority
I just signed the following petition addressed to: Patrick Foye, Executive Director of Port Authority.

----------------
Stop euthanizing birds in Teterboro & all other Port Authority Airports

Only non-lethal means should be used when dealing with wild animals at airports.

Sincerely,

      This brings attention to our petition. Please read and comment positively for the birds :) Right now, only one comment was made and it was anti-bird. We need the Port Authority appointees who decide to kill birds to feel the heat and know that their cruel decisions and illegitimate and unjustified!

      Surely there is an alternative program that can be put in place to save wildlife from this horrific practice.
