Dedicated to the study and conservation of Pacific Seabirds and their environment.

North Pacific Albatross Working Group

The North Pacific Albatross Working Group (NPAWG) was formed in 2000 in Honolulu, Hawai’i, during a meeting sponsored by the Western Pacific Regional Fishery Management Council and National Marine Fisheries Service. The goal of NPAWG is to improve albatross conservation in the North Pacific through enhanced communication and coordination for protection, management, monitoring, outreach, and research activities both nationally and internationally. The focus of NPAWG is the conservation of the three North Pacific albatross species: Black-footed, Laysan and Short-tailed Albatross. Everyone interested in albatross conservation is encouraged to join the listservice and attend the annual meeting in association with the annual meeting of the Pacific Seabird Group.
