Animal Pest Alert – Common Myna

The Common Myna or Mynah (Acridotheres tristis) is also known as the Indian, Calcutta or House Myna. It is not native to Australia but has established populations in eastern and south-eastern Australia, as well as other countries worldwide.
The Common Myna has significant potential to spread further in Australia as populations are expanding south in Queensland and westwards across western Victoria and New South Wales. It is important to immediately report any found in the wild in areas where the species has not been seen before.
Contains information on identification, distribution, damage, pest potential and risk management.
