Fear the Feral goat

pencilsauce_02_CC_feralgoats_joshdonlanFeral goats are a huge problem for native species.

This article in Current Conservation, is an interview with Josh Donlan, who was the chief scientist on project Isabella in the Galapagos island. He touches upon judas goats, feral cats who prey on Layson albatrosses and rallies in defence of rats !

Josh Donlan has an interesting way of making you relook at our world. He asks ” what type of world do you want to live in ? Do you want to live in a world filled with rats n dandelions or do you want to live in a world where there are these cool endemic lizards on andaman islands even if you never see them.”

The interview is an eye opener about feral animals and their effects on nature.
