From eleven animals, the Tahr grew to almost plague proportions, and necessitated culling procedures. Today there is reasonable control of numbers with only occasional culling, but on a world wide scale the animal is still fairly rare. The plaque, and explanation board both have a lot of interesting information about this unusual animal.

History of this Himalayan Tahr sheep in New Zealand is very interesting. From 2 herds of total 11 animals to 40,000 then dropped to 1000, human beings had played a dominant role in changing their population in NZ.

This is a rather odd, yet interesting, monument, commemorating the introduction of this wild goat to New Zealand over a century ago.

Interesting to see a monument to an introduced species that adapted well to the NZ environment. Culling was introduced in the 1970s to reduce numbers, but the herd in the Mt Cook area is the largest herd of these globally endangered species.
