Thanks very much for your questions, Cindy. If the goats are having a direct impact, it is likely through disturbance to nests as they move through De Filippi's Petrel breeding colonies. Goats could inadvertently step on nests and/or cause adults to abandon a nest, at least temporarily. We do not think that goats would eat chicks or eggs, although we will certainly monitor for evidence of that possible impact.
