  2. Marvelous and perhaps archival photograph of what might soon be a memory.
    Thank you for bringing this to us.

  3. Gorgeous animal. It looks so right where it is and it makes me sad, and angry, to think that soon there will no longer be a place for it.

  4. Amazing animal, so beautiful ( and fat :P). I hope the species will survive and it will continue to exist in the future!

  5. Thanks, Brian:

    It may have been a pregnant female, it apparently is about that time of year.

    Hopefully she successfully adds one more to the species.

    Thanks, Harold

  7. Thanks J,

    It seems to be holding its own for the moment. It is strongly protected by the state and breeds on barren islands in the chain which are clear of introduced predators such as rats.

    Thanks, Harold

  8. Thanks Hilke

    We can hope it hangs on and perhaps recovers in numbers. There is good protection but, of course, the low numbers makes it very vulnerable to natural disasters.

    Thanks, Harold
