Why communities are concerned

For those communities that have seen the invasion of myna birds, the problem is serious. The colonisation of myna birds has almost always coincided with a sharp decline in native wildlife. The community can be a powerful hand in turning things around. Bill Handke talks about the importance of controlling myna birds and how people can get involved.
