NatureServe Conservation Status
Rounded Global Status Rank: G3 - Vulnerable
Reasons: Distributed worldwide in warm oceans; exploited heavily for meat and eggs and as a component of other products; nesting and feeding habitats are being destroyed or degraded by pollution and development; large decline over the long term, more recently possibly stable or increasing in some areas.
Environmental Specificity: Very narrow to narrow.
Other Considerations: Individuals migrate up to 2,000 km between nesting beaches and feeding areas. Hence local populations may experience negative impacts from distant threats.
