Seabirds in the Hauraki Gulf

There’s always an abundance of diverse seabirds fluttering around in the Hauraki Gulf Marine Park

The diverse number of seabirds seen in the Hauraki Gulf makes it a globally significant seabird hotspot. Gannets, petrels, penguins, shags/cormorants, gulls and terns all breed in the area.

Four species (Buller’s shearwaters, New Zealand fairy terns, Pycroft’s petrels and Black petrels) breed only here and nowhere else in New Zealand or the rest of the world.
