Notice of Corella Management

Published on Monday, 10 June 2024 at 1:37:30 PM

Corella numbers within the Shire boundaries are causing:

  • significant environmental damage to the Shire tree canopy.
  • ongoing damage to other public and private assets and infrastructure( requiring high ongoing maintenance cots).
  • diminished amenity in public spaces through ongoing fouling creating public health issues.
  • habitat pressure on the threatened black cockatoos and other birdlife.

The Shire has engaged a professional company in an attempt to reduce the impact these invasive and highly damaging pest species is having.

In conjunction with the contracted service provider a culling program will be conducted on the 29 and 30 of June 2024 at the Goomalling golf club and other Shire owned land throughout the townsite.

The Shire acknowledges that culling of any wildlife is potentially distressing to some people. Unfortunately, it is a measure of last resort which must be taken to protect the larger environment, to minimise the increasing damage these species are causing throughout the community, and to reduce the pest corella population.
