The release of birds not native to New South Wales is an offence under the National Parks & Wildlife Act. All assistance should be given to NPWS(DEC) to remove these birds, especially as it is a national park, as they are as feral at Orange as are Common Mynas at Grafton. This is gross irresponsibility and should be punished if the culprit is found. It is no minor issue having feral birds released whether they be Australian or foreign species. There are enough pressures already on the local fauna species.

Were the birds obtained legally in Tasmania?
