Steve Minnikin the State Member for Chatsworth gave a speech in Parliament on December 2nd 2015 about the Carindale Community Forum at which Stefan Hattingh presented on the Common Myna Bird.
The meeting showcases informative guest speakers who provide us with vital information about the local community, upcoming events and new services that are available. Speakers come from all walks of life and cover a vast array of topics. Over the last five years, there have been numerous guest speakers at the forum covering a multitude of topics from home fire safety, personal development to environmental topics.
At the November meeting last week, which I attended, our guest speakers included Stefan Hattingh of the Bulimba Creek Catchment Coordinating Committee, and Lori Marshall, physiotherapist and owner of Ideal Carers.
Stefan spoke about the common myna birds and it was interesting to learn more about this problematic bird species and how we as a community can get involved to help mitigate the massive ecological damage that they cause.
