Chatham Shag, Chatham Island Shag, Chatham Shag
Phalacrocorax onslowi by Linda Besse(8 in. x 8 in. | Oil | ID#4043)
Family: PHALACROCORACIDAE | Conservation Status: Critically Endangered | Population Trend: decreasing
With fewer than 400 pairs remaining in the Chatham Islands of New Zealand, this shag is critically endangered. The striking marine feeder breeds and roosts on the rocky headlands of the coastline. Portraying a breeding pair is the best way I can think of to engage protection and recovery of this unique bird.
