|Title:||The conservation status of the Black-necked Stork 'Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus' in New South Wales||Contributor(s):||Clancy, Gregory P (author); Kingsford, Richard T (author)||Publication Date:||2015||Handle Link:||https://hdl.handle.net/1959.11/17713||Abstract:||The conservation status of the Black-necked Stork 'Ephippiorhynchus asiaticus australis' in New South Wales was assessed from field data gathered during 2003-2006 and historical data from various sources. The Australian and New Guinean population is estimated to be ~30 000 birds, mostly concentrated in Australia, but with >1000 birds in New Guinea (Delany & Scott 2002). These populations are considered secure. The New South Wales population (on the southern edge of the Stork's range) is ~80 breeding pairs with additional unattached adult and immature birds. Although considered secure, the species' listing as threatened should be maintained because of the small population size and potential future threats but it could be down-listed to Vulnerable.||Publication Type:||Journal Article||Source of Publication:||Australian Field Ornithology, 32(2), p. 108-112||Publisher:||BirdLife Australia||Place of Publication:||Australia||ISSN:||1448-0107||Field of Research (FOR):||060801 Animal Behaviour
