Cooks Petrels

Unlike the Grey Faced & Diving Petrels, Cooks Petrels have yet to establish a breeding population at the Cape. Expert advice is that they may choose to breed at the Cape at some stage in the future but at the moment we are waiting & hoping.

We have had two Cooks Petrel come to the Cape that we know of, and they may have bred outside the seabird site in typical Petrel habitat where the other petrels are nesting.
