The Program is a Council sponsored community program that aims to provide a response to growing community concern regarding the abundance and distribution of Indian Myna Birds within the region, and their impact on native wildlife, human health and our environment.
The program has been designed to engage residents through a community based program that includes the participation of the Corrimal Community Men's Shed. The program has three broad aims:
•To reduce the breeding, feeding and roosting opportunities for Indian Myna Birds.
•To conduct a humane trapping program that is acceptable to the community, animal welfare agencies and government.
•To survey and record Indian Myna bird numbers and impacts to assist with program development and future research.
After completion of a free workshop, participants will have the opportunity to purchase a trap for $50 Cash from Corrimal Community Mens Shed who will be in attendance at the workshop. Participants can alternatively purchase their trap directly from the Mens Shed upon presentation of a referral, which will be provided at the workshop.
Don't forget, if you would like to be part of our humane trapping program and purchase a trap on the day of the workshop you will need to bring $50 cash.
