Infrastructure Monitoring & Minimization Project (IMMP)

We are global leaders in assessing avian collision risk and implementing collision reduction measures for infrastructure and lighting used in power generation, power transmission and communications.

Pre-construction and during project planning, we provide:

  • Estimates on avian collision risk for infrastructure used in power generation, transmission and communications.
  • Advice on how to minimize collision risk and light attraction.

Post-construction, we quantify and minimize (reduce) avian collision risk at existing infrastructure through:

  • Rapid collision assessments and monitoring.
  • In-depth assessment of avian collision risk at the landscape or powerline grid scale.
  • Assessment of avian light attraction risk.
  • Data analysis and predictive modeling.
  • Local project capacity building including on-the-ground training of local staff.
  • Unbiased, scientific advice during the regulatory processes.

Our reports interpret the data and provide easy to read summaries as well as detailed scientific information. We work with clients to reduce bird strike with infrastructure in a cost effective and efficient manner, reducing collisions and light attraction of birds.

The Infrastructure Monitoring and Minimization Project (IMMP) team is headed up by Senior Scientist Marc Travers (MSc), who has a decade of experience in this area. Working with the University of Hawaii (UH) and with partners at University of California (UC) Santa Cruz and Conservation Metrics Inc., Travers has designed innovative, robust and scientifically validated methods to conduct efficient, landscape-scale level avian collision risk assessments.
