The Australasian Seabird Group, the oldest of BirdLife Australia’s Special Interest Groups, was formed in 1971 and is managed in collaboration with the Ornithological Society of New Zealand (Birds New Zealand).

Our objectives are to promote seabird research and conservation in Australasia. We pursue these through a range of activities, including publication of a bulletin and other seabird material, organisation of symposia of issues affecting seabirds, provision of expert opinion on the management and conservation of seabird populations in Australasia, and the coordination of projects including surveys of seabird islands and beach patrol projects.
