Justification of Red List category
This species has been extirpated from most of its historic range by introduced mammalian predators, to which it is highly susceptible. Declines have ceased as it is now confined to a few predator-free subantarctic islands where it is relatively secure within a very small range. Owing to the small number of locations that support the species and the small total population, it is considered Near Threatened.

Population size: 1000-2499

Population trend: Increasing

Extent of occurrence (breeding/resident): 5 km2

Country endemic: Yes
