There are plenty of pock­ets of feral goats in New Zealand. They thrive in those ar­eas that peo­ple and other an­i­mals don’t care to visit.

But it is not that com­mon to see them right up to a town bound­ary, as seems to be the case at Te Peka Re­serve and Look­out.

It would be great to see some­thing done about that. It seems a bit of a shame to have chil­dren up there plant­ing hun­dreds of trees, only to have a pest, like goats, come along and mow them down again.

Maybe there are peo­ple out there with a few ideas on the is­sue, who could help out. Or maybe the re­gional and district coun­cils can get to­gether and come up with a so­lu­tion.

It is great to see the work go­ing on to im­prove some of the bridges and other vi­tal in­fras­truc­ture around the place [page 3]. Also good to see the re­gion’s youth get­ting in­volved in the demo­cratic process. [Youth Am­bas­sadors P3].
