Erect-crested penguin (Eudyptes sclateri)
Endangered on the IUCN Red List.
Eudyptes sclateri nests on several New Zealand islands, and feeds in sub-Antarctic waters. It gathers in large colonies of thousands of birds, and often nests alongside other penguins such as rockhoppers. After the male has secured a nesting site, the female joins to build a nest and lay two eggs. Little else is known about this species, but it’s believed to feed on krill and squid.
The population of E. sclateri has undergone a rapid decline in recent years, and the small breeding range is thought to make it vulnerable. It is unclear what the main threats to this species are.
E. sclateri is protected within a World Heritage site, and all cattle and rats have been eradicated from one of islands on which this species breeds.
