This is a pretty happy Critter story: where hard work, dedication, time and adaptive management have actually substantially increased numbers and changed the threat status in the right direction, from ‘Nationally Endangered’ in 2005.  Extinction has been prevented!

Nicola Toki, DoC's threatened species ambassador, tells us all about this sea bird.
