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.

Reason if Threatened or Near Threatened  

Population decline greater than 50-79% in three generations (81 years) thought to be occurring as a result of reduced breeding success following storm damage to principal breeding site

Current Eligibility against IUCN Red List Criteria  

.

IUCN Category

Criteria Eligibility

A

Endangered - current population decline 50-79% over 3 generations (81 years) estimated and projected from monitoring and inferred from deteriorating habitat quality

B

Endangered - AOO (breeding) less than 500 km², at no more than 5 locations with plausible future threat, observed continuing decline in habitat quality, no. mature individuals

C

Not applicable - population greater than 10,000 mature individuals

D

Vulnerable - no more than 5 locations with plausible future threat

E

Not applicable - no population viability analysis undertaken
