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].
