Within the Province of KwaZulu-Natal, in South Africa, eThekwini Municipality intends to implement a Project aimed at eradicating the House Crow (Corvus splendens) from its jurisdiction. In terms of the National Environmental Management: Biodiversity Act (NEMBA), Act 10 of 2004, the species is listed as a Category 1a under the Invasive Alien Species (IAS) Regulations gazetted in July 2014 and as such requires immediate eradication efforts. The species belongs to a cosmopolitan family Corvidae, which has well over 120 species including oscine passerine birds such as crows, ravens, magpies, rooks, treepies etc. In line with legislation, eThekwini Municipality has implemented a number of large-scale programmes and projects aimed at controlling invasive alien species.
