About Program

Archipelagos Institute collaborates with Samos Airport and the University of the West of England to establish the population and distribution of the golden jackal at Samos Airport. Data on population and activity patterns and use of the airport habitat will inform an exclusion process that aims to decrease the threat of jackal / aircraft collision. This study adds to the development of ecologically sustainable animal exclusion processes in airports around the world. Other research focuses on the extent of anthropogenic disturbance on the habits and ecology of the jackals. Research activities include:
• Capturing and analyzing jackal audio and visual data through camera traps and acoustic devices
• Mapping jackal presence through tracking
• Carrying out nocturnal visual and acoustic surveys
• Analysing jackal diet through scat sampling and camera traps
• Collaborating with Samos Airport, Fraport and the University of West England to help design aircraft-jackal collision miti
