Feral goats are an introduced pest that causes an estimated $7.7 million damage to our economy each year. They also impact on our environment, community and culture significant sites. Feral goats are also commercially harvested in many areas – providing a valuable economic return to land managers. Where feral goats do cause adverse impacts, it is important that we work together to reduce their numbers and the damage they cause. FeralGoatScan is a free mapping service that you can use to map unmanaged feral goats in your local area to help with feral goat control in your region.

Feral goats can heavily browse native vegetation and pastures, and they can strip leaves, twigs and bark from trees. They can withstand prolonged periods of drought and can move large distances to access water. Source, R Henzell
