Event description

Description

Come and learn how can you help control Common (Indian) Myna Bird impacts. This workshop, presented by Stefan Hattingh, will explain how to identify this bird, how to report your sightings and how you can start trapping in your own backyard. It will also give you useful insights into the broader ecosystem and discuss the native Nosiy Miner too.

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

The ‘Common Myna Humane Reduction Program’ is a community program of the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee which creates community awareness of Common Myna (Acridotheres tristis) impacts. Volunteers have built cages and participants are trapping Common Myna birds in their backyards.

This event is being held in the function room upstairs at Coorparoo Bowls Club.
FREE. RSVP essential. Light refreshments provided. (For those wanting to catch up with friends afterwards - the bar opens at 12pm and food is served there at 1pm).
If you have any queries phone 3398 8003 or email b4c@bulimbacreek.org.au.

Proudly funded by the Brisbane City Council.

Why are Common Myna birds are problem?
Common Mynas were listed among 100 of the world’s worst invasive species by the World Conservation Union (IUCN) in 2000. In Australia, Common Myna birds are considered to threaten native biodiversity due to their territorial behaviours and nest cavity competition
