Key areas of activity:
MRIMAG operates under the auspices of Woodend Landcare, with support from Macedon Ranges Sustainability Group and several MRSC councilors and membership is free.
To date 70 traps have been made by the group’s volunteers and distributed from Bullengarook to Kyneton. The traps are simple but effective wire constructions – over 300 Indian mynas have been caught and humanely destroyed. Traps remain the property of MRIMAG and are loaned to members, moved to hot spots accordingly.
An information brochure and photographic ID sheet are currently being prepared by MRIMAG.
Future plans include engaging with other Landcare groups in the UCLN and surrounds, conducting an Indian myna survey and holding a forum for trappers and members of the public.
