    Location Notes:
    Threat to endangered species: Predation by feral cats has been identified as the most serious threat to the decline in populations of the colonies of the endangered Hawaiian petrel (see Pterodroma sandwichensis in IUCN Red List of Threatened Species) on the Hawaiian islands. Colonies of petrels have been recorded on Maui in the Haleakala National Park, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, Kaua`I, Lana`I and small numbers on Moloka`I (BirdLife International 2006).
