Res NZ, but extirpated NI and last surviving birds removed from SI (Fiordland, 1) and Stewart I (61). Possibility that Stewart I population resulted from introduction discussed by Holdaway et al 2001. Reint Little Barrier I where birds now removed, Codfish I 46 inds, Pearl and/or Chetwode I 7 males, Maud I 9 inds. Thus at 1 Feb 2002 total pop 62 (Powlesland et al 1995). Amazing 2002 breeding season followed, when about 32 of 50 eggs laid by 20 females on Codfish I=Whenua Hou were fertile, with first chicks hatching mid-Feb; total of 26 chicks hatched, with 24 surviving for total pop now 86. Because carrying capacity reached on Codfish I, 3 males and 7 females from Codfish I and 3 males and 1 female from Maud I (total 14, including sole Fiordland bird surviving, "Richard Henry") transferred to Chalky I=Te Kakahu in Fiordland 8 Jul 2002. Thus Codfish I now has 60 birds, Maud I 5 birds, Chalky I 14 birds, Pearl/Chetwode Is 7 birds.
