Mottled petrel research

Mottled petrel feeding trial – Poutiri and the Cape Sanctuary are proposing to reintroduce Mottled petrel (kori) to Hawke’s Bay.

Although seabird translocations have been successfully undertaken, each species has specific feeding and fledging requirements. These need researching before undertaking a translocation. A team has recently returned from Whenua Hou having undertaken this research on Mottled petrel – a species of which very little is known.
