…. It can seem horrible to some city folks, but farmers have to survive somehow, and those feral goats can be so destructive

I think most people are reasonably educated now on soil and land degradation, the reasons and the remedies.  What 'city people' and equally a lot of country people find unacceptable is treatment of brumbies, goats, camels, on their last day/s - not the fact that they need to be off the land.  (Just as so many from both backgrounds will never accept live transport as an acceptable option).

 

Great to hear the trees are being given a chance and able to regenerate even through the dry times, and even more-so that Govt land isn't being neglected totally.  The bits of Govt land around us are fox and rabbit repositories, they depend on myxie outbreaks for rabbits and nearby farms to shoot foxes, do nothing themselves.

 

And hey, whatever, stunning photos those two!

yes..

not 'just' farmers..

The Boss took me for a drive on one Government-owned  property he patrols  and proudly showed me groves of young native trees ... all looking healthy, and all germinated/grown since goats have been removed .Goats are absolute death on so many of our indigenous plants , and it was such a thrill to see-even in drought times , the regeneration happening!! 
He was  SO pleased with the  visible results of his hard work :) 

As he should be perse... it must be really awesome to see such positive results, yes?
