Canberra - Indian Myna Action Group Inc. Australia


Indian Myna - Acridotheres tristis - numbers have exploded across Canberra since they were deliberately introduced, and are a serious environmental threat to native wildlife. Indian Mynas:

  • are one of the most invasive animal species in the world
  • take over nesting hollows, evicting birds and small mammals, and prey on nestlings
  • pose some small human health risk, and
  • the nesting material they bring into roof cavities and other spaces in buildings can be a fire hazard.

We have the same problem in South Africa, Durban to Guateng.
