Justification of Red List category
This species has been extirpated from the largest island in its historic range by introduced mammalian predators, to which it is highly susceptible. Declines have ceased as mammalian predators are absent from the remaining subantarctic islands where it occurs, and it is relatively secure within this small range. Due to the restricted number of locations and the plausible threat of introduced predators driving the species to Endangered?or?Vulnerable?in?a very short time, the species is classified as Near Threatened.

Population size: 20000-49999 mature individuals

Population trend: stable

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 125,000 km2

Country endemic: yes
