Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels

Test

Black-browed Albatrosses were not proven breeding during the 2008 and 2009 visits, although two birds were seen ashore on Toru Islet in both years, one of which occupied a nest mound.

 

With grateful thanks to Matt Charteris of Waybacks Limited, Buller, New Zealand for supplying the information and photographs.
