Published: Port of Los Angeles Wildlife Impact Mitigation Project

This year International Bird Rescue was proud to complete the Port of Los Angles Wildlife Impact Mitigation Project, which was generously funded through a grant from the Harbor Community Benefit Foundation (HCBF). This program involved a unique approach and included a three-step process to assess and mitigate impacts on wildlife in the Port of Los Angeles.

The first step in the program was to gather historical data from all organizations that service wildlife in the Port in order to assess effects on wildlife.

The second step entailed outreach and training for businesses and industry working in the Port in order to provide them with updates on laws and regulations, assessment abilities, and solutions that seek to mitigate wildlife impacts.

The third step was to formulate recommendations for future mitigation of wildlife impacts.

We are happy to report that Bird Rescue accomplished all of the goals set forth for the project, and at the same time built positive relationships and solutions for the future. We hope that the work conducted during this project will serve as an initial model that can be expanded and improved going forward to continue to address a rapidly changing environment in which we humans can live side-by-side with our local wildlife populations.
