The Gould’s Petrel (Pterodroma leucoptera leucoptera) is Australia’s rarest endemic seabird. The subspecies has one significant breeding locality at Cabbage Tree Island, off the coast at Port Stephens, New South Wales (NSW). Without management, Gould’s Petrel is extremely vulnerable to extinction due to a combination of low population numbers, limited breeding sites and severe threatening processes.
