Corella Control Program


16 December 2020

Please be advised that measures to control the seasonal influx of Corellas may commence in various locations within the following months.  

Shire staff will identify key areas to deploy the handheld deterrent which fires a pyrotechnic cartridge approximately 20 to 90 metres into the air, close to where the corellas are roosting. Three different cartridges are used; one to un-roost the birds and two that emit different high-pitched sounds in order to relocate the birds.

All control measures will comply with the provisions of the Wildlife Conservation Act 1950, Wildlife Conservation Regulations 1970 and any notices in force under this legislation. 

If you would like to register to be notified by SMS 15 minutes prior to the commencement of the deployment of the pyrotechnic cartridges, please see the following options:
