Search for the Fiji Petrel

Fiji Petrel is known from one specimen collected in 1855 on Gau Island, Fiji. It was not seen again for 130 years.

Since 1984 there have been a handful of reports of grounded birds drawn to the lights in the village on Gau.

Until 2009, there had been no confirmed at-sea sightings. See video below.
