ANSWER 3 ︎︎︎ For institutions and organizations interested in restoring humanity. 





Reporter: Well, this is interesting because I thought of the birds as 'trapped'. But you say that one possibility is that they're moving in and out and they've just made [the airport] home.

Spokesperson: Yeah, it's certainly a possibility that they have figured out that when people walk through those doors, the doors stay open for a few seconds and they can move in and out as they please.

Reporter: Well I gather that it is a goal of yours to move them to the outside but [the airport] is not small and that can't be an easy task.

Spokesperson: No, it's extremely difficult to remove birds from the airport. The terminal alone is 1.5 million square feet of space with really huge expanses all the way up to the tented rooftop so you're talking many volumes on top of that square footage. And the concourses feature an additional four million square feet of space so it's a giant area to try and control with a handful of personnel who are trained to do that kind of thing. It's a very difficult task.

Reporter: Have you ever tried to get a census, a number on the birds that are in the facility?

Spokesperson: No, not to my knowledge. We have made several attempts to trap them, remove them over the years. We work very closely with our partners at the USDA Wildlife teams to mitigate wildlife across the airport, and that includes inside the building. They've tried things like putting up small netting, traps, but we've not found a single technique that's successful. They're just, they're very small, they're smart and they're very fast little birds.
