Crete by the Sea

There is an island right outside of the city of Platanias on Crete that is inhabitated by hundereds of goats and one herd. Apparently the goats are of a specific breed called Kri-kri that was near extinction in the 1930s. As a result of this the Cretans decided to move a few of the remaining ones to these two islands called the Agioi Theodoroi islands to let them roam there freely and breed. Noone is allowed to enter the islands except for one day each year.
