The City of Cape Town's Invasive Alien Species department, together with CapeNature, is working on the programme to overcome the House Crow problem in and around Cape Town. The co-ordinator for the City is Louise Stafford. Some signigicant success has been achieved but this is an ongoing effort and persistence will be needed. Re-population has been reported from some sites. The City has received additional funding from the National Working for Water programme and intends boosting people on the ground.
