A small group tackling pest bird species: Prison and Landcare

Members of the Tanjil Valley Landcare Group came together on the issue of Indian Mynah birds and talked with the Fulham Correctional Centre at Kilmany to construct wire Indian Mynah traps for the group. A design template was given to the prison and, once constructed, the Landcare group members were able to purchase the traps from the group. One dairy farmer member who had major problems with Indian Mynah birds eating pelletised feed on his farm was able to reduce the Indian Mynah bird population on his place by trapping over 100 of the pest species.
