Common Myna birds – why are they a problem?

Loading Events
  • This event has passed.

Common Mynas were listed among 100 of the world’s worst invasive species by the Wold Conservation Union in 2000. In Australia, Common Myna birds are considered a threat to native biodiversity due to their territorial behaviours and nest cavity competition.

Learn how you can help to control the impacts of the Common Myna at a free workshop.

Stefan Hattingh from the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee, will discuss the impacts of feral animals on our native wildlife, with a focus on the Common Myna.

The workshop will explain how to identify the bird, report sightings and humanely trap these birds in your own backyard.

After attending the event, participants interested in trapping Mynas can borrow a cage and learn how to set it up.

Participants must sign the Animal Welfare Protocol before they begin trapping.

This event hosted by the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee, and supported by a Norman Wettenhall Small Environment Grant.
