Event description

Description

Come and learn how can you help control Common Myna Bird impacts. This workshop will explain how to identify this bird, how to report your sightings and how you can start trapping in your own backyard.

After attending this event, if you're interested in trapping, you can borrow a cage and learn how to set it up. Participants will also need to sign the Animal Welfare Protocol before starting any trapping.

The ‘Common Myna Humane Reduction Program in Brisbane’ is a community program of the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee which creates community awareness of Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis) impacts, volunteers build cages and participants trap Common Myna birds in their backyards.

Refreshments Provided.
