Guide future conservation action for Beck’s petrel (Pseudobulwerie becki) by addressing critical knowledge gaps. Identify concentrations of Beck’s petrel in New Ireland, Papua New Guinea, on land and at sea, through local consultation and search efforts. Test capture techniques for Beck’s petrel at sea that allow deployment of satellite tags. Narrow the search area for Beck’s petrel breeding colonies through satellite tracking. Strengthen cooperation among stakeholders for continuing conservation efforts via a Beck's petrel task force.

Strategic Direction: 3 Safeguard priority globally threatened species by addressing major threats and information gaps
