In Sept. 1978 a colony of about 30-35 pairs of South Georgian diving petrels was identified breeding among the sand dunes at Sealers' Bay, Codfish Island, New Zealand (46.degree.46'S 167.degree.39'E). This may be the only surviving colony of this species in the Australasian region. It is the only colony in the Subtropical Convergence (all others are in colder waters) and the only one sympatric with P. urinatrix chathamensis (all others are sympatric with P. u. exsul).
