From Australasian gannets to yellow-eyed penguins, this beautifully presented, highly pictorial, guide explains the physical characteristics, ecology, range and potential threats of 28 different New Zealand seabirds. It also provides the current New Zealand conservation status and the Ministry of Fisheries Species Code and Group Code for each species.
Most of the birds in this guide breed only in New Zealand and many face a number of threats, including being caught in New Zealand fisheries. While some of New Zealand’s fisheries have effective mitigation measures in place to reduce the number of seabirds being killed and injured, a number of others need to better address this issue if future generations are to enjoy these remarkable birds.
