Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University is opening an International Center for Aviation and Wildlife Risk Mitigation at its Prescott, Ariz. campus. The new center will bring together top aviation wildlife experts to share and develop new research and management solutions to reduce the dangers that animals pose to aircraft and serve as a resource to airports around the world. National wildlife expert Archie Dickey, an ERAU associate professor of aviation environmental science, will serve as the director of the center.
