Hares and birds have been hit by planes or other vehicles at Dublin Airport 54 times this year - significantly down on 2018's figures.
There have been 43 reported bird strikes at Dublin Airport so far this year, while 11 hares that live in grassy areas along the runways have been run over by aircraft or other vehicles on the airfield.
A number of measures have been introduced by the DAA to cut down on animal deaths - including using nets to capture them and setting off flare guns to scare animals off.
44 hares were caught and released elsewhere this year.
Another step is to cull hares after there have been a significant number of strikes. 55 were destroyed last year.
Animals were hit 102 times in 2018 - which is down to 54 so far this year.
