27-06-2011 - Beck's Petrel
This project completed the first targeted search for the currently unknown breeding grounds of Beck's Petrel Pseudobulweria becki. At a coastal location by New Ireland, Papua New Guinea, the single greatest aggregation of Beck's Petrel ever recorded was encountered in March 2012. Over 100 birds seen close to land are a strong indication that the species breeds at adjacent Mount Agil, New Ireland's highest peak.
