Priorities for Future Research

Continue monitoring populations. Also continue studying the species reproductive biology and foraging behaviour at sea not only during the breeding season but also during the nonbreeding period. Estimate the impact that certain human activities such as fishing, turism, hydrocarbon transportation and guano extraction have on this species.
