The Chinese Air Force has trained two monkeys to remove birds’ nests around the airports in order to ensure flight safety and minimise the threat of bird hits to the aircraft during landing and take offs, reported official media.
The Air Force’s Beijing Military Area Command has deployed the monkeys as millions of migrating birds fly north for summer. But when they settle around the airport, they become a hidden danger for flight safety.
Director of the Air Force Station Wang Yuejian said training monkeys are very easy because they are good in climbing.

“Compared with other anti-bird methods, using monkeys is safe, efficient, low cost, and avoids harming the birds excessively,” Wang said.
After training, each monkey can remove six to eight bird nests every day and the pair has already dealt with more than 180 nests around the airport.
