The Indian Myna Control Project is a joining of two community driven projects funded by the NSW Environmental Trust covering the Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca Local Government Areas and the Hastings and Macleay LGAâ€™s. The projects seek to reduce the impacts of the growing Indian myna invasion in our urban and rural environments.
The web site provides you with background information on this feral species and how you can participate in the population reduction program. You'll find all the latest news on Indian mynas, as well as details of up-coming events and activities in your local area.
The Indian myna (Acridotheres tristis) belongs to the Starling family; a group of birds which includes another invasive species, the Common Starling (Sturnus vulgaris).
The main objectives of the project
The project area covers the Coffs Harbour, Bellingen and Nambucca LGA's. In co-operation with participating Councils, the project is supported by the three corresponding Landcare organisations, as well as the National Parks and Wildlife Service (Department of Environment & Climate Change) and the Ulitarra Conservation Society.
