Goulds Petrel: a long term success story
Goulds Petrel success story

Until recently, the only place in the world where Goulds Petrel were known to come to land and to breed was Cabbage Tree Island off the NSW coast. By the 1970s, their numbers were found to be falling drastically and the birds were at risk of extinction. Nicholas Carlile, Research Scientist with the (then) NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service has been involved in the very long term and highly successful recovery program for the Gould’s petrel: and one that is an outstanding example of effective creative conservation in action.
