Eurobodalla Council have been working with the community since 2009 to control Indian Mynas in the Tuross area and had completely removed them from Tuross for years. There have, however, been recent reports of a few being seeing in a couple of locations. To nip the declared pest in the bud Council have put up posters at the shops, have provided pamphlets and have door knocked the ‘hot spot’ areas to try and get locals keen to trap Indian Mynas where they are regularly landing.
To date, with the help of excellent local volunteers overseeing the eradication project, the Tuross Head community has done an excellent job controlling this pest species. The Tuross community need to be aware of their presence again and it is hoped that with proactive control the few that have arrived can be caught before they breed and multiply. If you see an Indian Myna please report it to Eurobodalla Council on 44741000
