Surveys and capacity building in Kiritimati (Christmas Island, Kiribati)  June 2007, to assist in restoration of populations of Bokikokiko and seabirds
Abstract: 

Kiritimati (Line Islands, Kiribati) supports globally important populations of many seabird species including the largest breeding populations of two threatened species – Te ruru (Phoenix petrel, Pterodroma alba; Endangered) and Te bwebwe ni marawa (whitethroated storm-petrel, Nesofregetta fuliginosa; Vulnerable). These and other seabirds and one landbird species are increasingly being threated by an increasing human population (5000+) and the impacts of mammalian pests, including the recent arrival of black rats (Rattus rattus).
