Common Myna Humane Reduction Workshop

Tuesday, February 18 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

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 fascinating insights into the broader ecosystem, biodiversity 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.

FREE. RSVP essential. Refreshments provided.
If you have any queries phone 3398 8003 or email b4c@bulimbacreek.org.au.

Proudly funded by the Brisbane City Council’s Environment Grant.
