Pink-footed shearwater (Puffinus creatopus) COSEWIC assessment and status report: chapter 1
Assessment Summary – May 2004
Common name: Pink-footed Shearwater
Scientific name: Puffinus Creatopus
Reason for designation: This seabird breeds on only three islands off the coast of Chile, where it has suffered significant but unmeasured declines due to nest predation by introduced predators, exploitation by humans and habitat degradation. It likely incurs mortality due to incidental take by fisheries off the coast of British Columbia during the non-breeding season and would be sensitive to any offshore oil spills there.
Occurrence: British Columbia
Status history: Designated Threatened in May 2004. Assessment based on a new status report.
