I think the Department of Conservation is taking the correct approach here by educating all Upukerora River outlet users about the potential disturbance to the black billed gulls rather than just employing the draconian approach of closing the area to everyone.
As a side note – The black billed gull (also known as tarapuka or Buller’s gull) have the marginally better Conservation Status of Endangered and not “critically endangered” as stated in the Stuff article.
