NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G2 - Imperiled
Reasons: Oceanic distribution is nearly worldwide, but the number of nesting sites is few; many nesting areas have few breeding females and suffer from some human predation; range and number of occurrences have undergone reduction; recent severe population declines at some nesting locations.
Intrinsic Vulnerability: Highly vulnerable
Environmental Specificity: Very narrow to narrow.
Other Considerations: Individuals may move hundreds to thousands of kilometers between nesting beaches and distant marine waters; this increases vulnerability to incidental take.
