Of approximately 10,000 species of birds, about 300 can be described as sea birds - those finding all their needs from coasts and seas. Roughly half of these are found in the waters of Australia and New Zealand and their territories. From Saunders's Tern on the Cocos (Keeling) Islands to the King Penguin of Macquarie Island to the Chatham Albatross at The Pyramid, all seabird families but the northern hemisphere alcids are well represented.
Geographically, this site covers the Australian and New Zealand mainlands together with the islands in their territorial waters. Cocos (Keeling) Islands, Christmas Island, Ashmore Reef, Norfolk Island, Lord Howe Island, the Chatham Islands and the sub Antarctic islands are also included.
This site is developing and several features are not yet available. More photos will be added intermittently. Please keep coming back.
