Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels

The Albatross and Petrel Agreement’s Population and Conservation Status Working Group (PaCSWG4), is holding its fourth meeting this week in Wellington, New Zealand. The two days of discussions follow a three-day meeting of a sister ACAP Working Group on seabird bycatch (SBWG8).  The deliberations of both groups will be reported to the 10th Meeting of the ACAP Advisory Committee (AC10) next week.
