The conservation status and priorities for albatrosses and large petrels distributed in the WCPFC area
A review of the conservation status and priorities for albatrosses and large petrels has recently been published in Biological Conservation (Phillips et al. 2016). Here we present the summary and the link where the paper can be accessed. Those species referred to in the paper that are distributed within the WCPFC area are listed in Appendix 1, together with information on their current population sizes, trends and conservation status. Further information can also be found in the Species Assessments developed by ACAP (http://www.acap.aq/en/acap-species), which provide comprehensive information on the distribution, biology and threats facing all ACAP species. These assessments are currently being updated.
