Goats in Adelaide Hills

Feral goats in the South Para Reservoir catchment reserve, Adelaide Hills, South Australia. 84 feral goats were present in 12 square kilometres of native forest and pine plantation. They were eradicated with the aid of Judas goats. This area is still free of feral goats more than 20 years later, despite their presence in another reservoir catchment reserve about 3 kilometres upstream and the presence of a scrub corridor along the river connecting the two catchments.
