San Clemente Island Goats
Shrouded with Mystery and Legend
These Castaways were left on the Catalina islands off the southern coast of California by renegade explorers of lore. At least that's what some of us like to believe. The truth is though, nobody is absolutely certain what actually happened 500 years ago. Everyone likes a little fantasy mixed in with a good adventure story or even a few twists in a thrilling mystery for sure.
The San Clemente Island goats were thriving just 25 years ago. That's about when our government (in the form of the Bureau of Land Management) allowed these beautiful creatures to be eradicated from the island. In fact, they were nearly wiped off the face of the planet, save for the few brave souls who stood up to rescue them. (see more at: www.scigoats.org) A few fortunate goats were then re-homed in conservation herds and spread here and there across the country with very little chance to propagate or recover at all from our governments actions. (Can you believe we are talking 1990's ) !
The numbers dropped to a desperate 200 a few years back. Today, in 2013, the total number of these critically endangered SCI goats is still struggling precariuosly attaining numbers of less than 475 world wide. ( Most known only to inhabit North America and Canada ) It is with a great love for these animals ; a few special people have made extraordinary efforts to reestablish these animals across the country. For all of you that are involved helping save the San Clemente Island goats.............we love ya!! Thanks so, so very much!!
