GalapaGoats

Project Isabela works to remove goats from many of the islands. By 2006, almost all are gone from 3 islands: Pinta, Santiago, ' Isabela."Judus Goats" (ones who are sterilized so they will not reproduce but given additional hormones) are kept on these islands to attract any new goats that enter the island, helping to maintain a goat free Galapagos.

* Major desctruction of grasses and forests, bulldozing everything in its path.* Loss of island biodiversity.* Loss of habitat locations for native species.* Massive overpopulation with no predatory force for control.
