    Common Myna
    Humane Reduction Workshop 
    Friday, 3rd March 2017
    Come along and learn how can you help to control Common Myna 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, participants interested in trapping 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.
    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. 
    For more information check out the flyer. This workshop is free. It is supported by The Norman Wettenhall Foundation, Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee and the Cubberla-Witton Catchments Network.
