Title
Tūturuatu or Shore Plover
Description
Tūturuatu or Shore Plover are endemic to Aotearoa and one of the world’s rarest shorebirds with a conservation status, nationally critical. The global population is estimated to be fewer than 240 birds. They are very susceptible to cats, rats and other predators and in recent years Shore Plover have been translocated to predator free off-shore islands such as Mana in an attempt to protect them and to establish a breeding colony.
