Welcome to Yarra Indian Myna Action Group

The principal objective of YIMAG is to reduce the impact of Indian mynas on our native birds and animals.

We aim to achieve this objective by:

  1. Increasing public awareness that Indian mynas are a serious environmental and health threat, not just a public nuisance.
  2. Implementing a humane reduction program.
  3. Coordinating the manufacture and supply of traps.

The Group recognises that its endeavours are unlikely to totally eliminate Indian mynas from the local environment. However, with a concerted, coordinated and sustained effort, we believe a significant impact can be made on the Indian myna population in a region, thereby helping to protect our native birds and small mammals.

Trapped so far: 8078

Traps are available for purchase from YIMAG for $50. Membership of YIMAG is $5 for two years (optional with purchase of trap).
