Indian mynas

Indian mynas are a real threat to our indigenous bird population because they aggressively out-compete native birds for nesting sites and food.  The Canberra Indian Myna Action Group had to develop strong measures against mynas after the Canberra bushfires when they found that local bird species were being forced out of remnant and new and emerging vegetation.  CIMAG developed very simple and easily made traps to catch these birds and a humane way to dispose of them.

      Belgrave Big Dreams Market Update

      This lovely little market goes from strength to strength in its new venue in the Hayes Carpark next to the Belgrave Book Barn.  Great food and coffee, local hand-made goods and many stalls promoting the work  of the various community groups in the area. Well worth a visit.  We were there last month promoting our upcoming AWESOME ORNITHORHYNKIDS FESTIVAL at Belgrave Lake Park on September 13th.
