Situated on the east coast of the North Island of New Zealand, Cape Kidnappers has been identified as an important bird area and is home to a colony of Australasian Gannets.

The average wing span of these large sea birds is massive 1.8 metres (adult), an impressive sight to see when their wings are spread.
