New Iberia airport gets $85,000 grant

The Acadiana Regional Airport in New Iberia is getting an $85,000 grant to conduct a study on how to reduce hazards from birds and other wildlife to aircraft.

The money is coming from the Federal Aviation Administration.

The airport already has constructed a perimeter fence to keep out alligators, armadillos, coyotes, opossums and skunks. The study will provide other ideas how to best manage wildlife around the
airport.

The yearlong study involves a biologist taking an inventory of all wildlife within five miles of the airport. The biologist also will monitor migratory patterns and evaluate how they can best be
handled by the airport.
