New Zealand dotterels used to be common around many areas of New Zealand, but they are now an endangered species, and are only found in a few places. In the year 2000 there were only about 1300 Northern NZ dotterels. There are more Northern NZ dotterel than Southern NZ dotterel, but they are still endangered. And because of people and predators the population is going down each year.
