    Abstract

    1. The first Session of the Meeting of the Parties (MOP1) of the Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels (ACAP) agreed to review the population status, trends and demography of albatrosses (21 species) and petrels (seven species) listed on Annex 1 of the Agreement (MOP1 Final Report, Paragraph 7.2).
    2. To progress this review, ACAP’s Advisory Committee established a Working Group with the aim of collecting and collating information on breeding numbers and critical population and demographic parameters on each species. It was anticipated that this synthesis would then enable gaps in information to be identified and facilitate the prioritisation of actions to collect information to fill these gaps.
    3. The data for this review was sought from Parties and Signatories to ACAP that are Breeding Range States for the ACAP-listed species. Rosemary Gales (Australia) was appointed to chair the Working Group. A summary of the findings of the Working Group are provided.
