 This report summarises counts of southern Buller’s albatrosses breeding at The Snares during March 2019. The survey of the main North East Island was incomplete due to adverse weather, but the 3557 breeding pairs recorded along the East Coast, North Promontory, and West Coast was similar to the 3387 breeding pairs estimated in the same areas in 2014. While there was an increase in the size of the breeding population over the period 1969–2002, the present study indicates this has not continued.
