The Great Nest Box Project

The ANU Great Nest Box project is giving away free nesting boxes to approved homes in:

•Kaleen / Giralang
•Aranda / Cook
•Pearce / Torrens / Chifley
•Kambah (south)

We want to give away 250 nesting boxes to people in these suburbs to find out what Indian Mynas are doing to native wildlife.  All you have to do is report monthly on what birds are using the boxes.  We will do the rest.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please email with your name and street address. 

Successful applicants will be notified by email. Overall results (without detail of specific addresses) will be published in the media, when the study is completed.

Your participation in this important research on the Common Myna and its impact on native Australian species is much appreciated.
