Key to maps

reddot.png(red dots) core records, known to represent existing locations of focal taxa; in the case of intra-continental migrants, only records approximating the taxon’s breeding distribution are used.

orangedot(orange dots) non-core records, representing vagrant occurrences of the focal taxon obviously outside its usual range, or historical observations of a taxon known to be extinct at that location.

greydot(grey dots) records of other subspecies of the same species as the focal taxon; or in the case of intra-continental migrants, non-breeding records of the focal taxon not included as core records.

blueploy(blue polygons) minimum convex polygons underlying the locational records on the maps that depict each existing taxon’s Extent of Occurrence (EOO).

yellowpoly

(yellow polygons) areas formerly occupied by Extinct taxa.

 

redarrow(red arrows) the location of taxa with very small distributionsand known seabird breeding locations.

Maps were made using the Geoscience Australia Lambert Conformal Conic (GALCC) projection.

Population type  

Australian breeding population

IUCN Red List Status 2010  

Near Threatened A2bc

Environmental Protection and Biodiversity Conservation Act Status  

Not listed

Reason if Threatened or Near Threatened  

Population decline may be approaching 30% in 3 generations (55 years) from loss of breeding habitat and because often caught as bycatch by longline fishing and may be affected by pollution

IUCN Red List Status 2000  

Least Concern

Reason if changed in 2010  

Evidence for decline in population

IUCN Red List Status 1990  

Least Concern

Reason if changed in 2000  

No change

Criteria Eligibility

A

Near Threatened - population decline 20-29% over the last 3 generations (55 years) inferred from monitoring and deteriorating habitat quality
