Goat Muster at Eurardy

on 29 Jan 2013 

Ian and Nikki has been busy at Eurardy cleaning up the feral goats. Goats do loads of damage by eating the native vegetation and damaging the soil surface which can lead to erosion. Controlling total grazing pressure is critical in restoring health to the Rangelands. Ian managed to off load half the trapped goats to a farmer in Geraldton.

In total 97 goats were removed from the East of the Reserve. No further goat activity is currently evident.

Eurardy also recieved two inches of lovely rain a couple of weeks back. I have also included a picture of some members of the WA team enjoying the sea breeze at Monkey Mia - part of an important Rangelands workshop!
