    The Buller’s Albatross is susceptible to predation by introduced rats and cats, simply because of its ground-nesting behaviour. Other mammals for instancerabbits, pigs and goatsdisturb and destroy the habitat.

    This species, like numerous seabirds,
    is invariably threatened by long line fishing fleets, and ingestion of fishing hooks sometimes regurgitated towards the chick which dies.

    Marine
    degradation and pollution of both marine and inland habitat perhaps havelong-term effects on the numbers of this species. The estimated annual breeding population is about 32 000 pairs through the entire range.

    Currently, the Buller’s Albatross is evaluated as Near Threatened.

    I got a golden retriever recently, although I am a very busy guy and can hardly take time to attend him. I absolutely want to be responsible, so I do anything I could to be a qualified pet owner. I work late, so I purchase a automatic pet feeder which helps me to feed him timely while I am out; and a couple of toys for his entertainment. Importantly I spare half an hour a day, at least, to walk him at night.
