The Vulnerable Yelkouan Shearwater is a potential candidate for ACAP listing.
“BirdLife Malta’s LIFE Arċipelagu Garnija project aims at securing the Maltese Islands for the Yelkouan Shearwater, of where approximately 10% of the species’ global population can be found. Protection of this local population is important on the global scale, especially with the drastic declines Yelkouan Shearwaters have been facing over the last decades.”
