How to get involved

FeralGoatScan is a freely available website and mapping facility for local communities anywhere in Australia. Data entered into FeralGoatScan can help to identify priority areas for goat control, coordinate control activities, and report the situation with feral goats at any time and within any region. By recording information about feral goats in your area, you will be helping to address the problems they are causing in your local area and across the country. 
Baaarrrrrr, get involved !!!

Collecting and recording data

Before entering data, you will need to Register. Once registered, you can enter as little or as much information as you like, but the more data you enter, the more useful FeralGoatScan will be for the management of feral goats in your area. If you have registered as part of another species project (e.g RabbitScan) you do not need to register again.

1. How many feral goats are there in your area?

By mapping sightings of feral goats, FeralGoatScan will be able to map where feral goats occur in your region to help guide control activities. The number of goats seen can help to decide what course of action to take. Reporting areas where feral goats have not been seen is also important.

2. What damage (or problems) are feral goats causing?

If feral goats are a problem in your area, record what damage (or problems) they are causing. For example, browsing damage to vegetation. By recording problems, this information can be considered across your region, and can help to alert others to be watchful for similar problems. The aim should be to reduce the damage feral goats cause in the long term, and across the region, not just a small area.

3. What control is being undertaken?

Recording whether feral goats are being controlled at your site can help to evaluate the success of activities, and identify suitable management options, ie how best to control feral goats in your region. It can also help to identify whether there are gaps in the areas being controlled. Mapping where control has occurred can produce useful information for others in your area, especially so group control programs can be organised across larger areas.
