Calculating overall effectiveness category Expert assessment panel. Background information and definitions Many species of Procellariiformes petrels, shearwaters and albatrosses breed on offshore or oceanic islands and have suffered severe population declines and local extinctions due to introduced mammalian predators. Study locations.
Key messages Two studies from Australia and one from New Zealand found that colonies of burrow-nesting Procellariiformes were successfully established on two islands, and in uninhabited areas of another following the translocation and hand-rearing of chicks.
About key messages Key messages provide a descriptive index to studies we have found that test this intervention.

The gadfly petrels are named for their speedy weaving flight. These medium to large petrels feed on food items picked from the ocean surface. The short, sturdy bills are adapted for soft prey taken at the surface.
These birds nest in colonies on islands and are pelagic when not breeding. One white egg is laid usually The Petrels And Shearwaters - No Artist - Sea And Island Birds (Vinyl a burrow or on open ground.
They are nocturnal at the breeding colonies. While generally wide-ranging, most Pterodroma species are confined to a single ocean basin e.
