Abstract The daily range of feral goats varied in relation to social class and environmental variables. Mean daily ranges for 5 social classes were: male herd, 3.52 × 105 m2; female herd, 2.12 × 105 m2; composite herd, 1.86 × 105 m2; stayer female, 0.57 × 105 m2; creche group, 0.39 × 105 m2. Total recorded home range was male herd 14.8 × 105 m2 and female herd 9.65 × 105 m2. Female herd daily range varied seasonally in terms of size, location and habitat utilization. Female herd daily range area was correlated significantly with number of days since rain (r = 0.412), amount of rain in the past 30 days (r = -0.296), maximum daily temperature (r = -0.409), and minimum daily temperature (r = -0.523), but not with wind velocity in the morning (r = -0.064) or afternoon (r = -0.137).
