Artist's Description

Artis Amsterdam – Zoo collection
the Netherlands

Description:

Northern Gannet (Lat. Morus bassanus – Nl. Jan van Gent) – portrait
cool lady, isn’t she! :D

Range
Quote Wikipedia :
“Their breeding range is the North Atlantic. They normally nest in large colonies, on cliffs overlooking the ocean or on small rocky islands. The largest colony of this bird, with over 60,000 couples, is found on Bonaventure Island, Quebec, but 68% of the world population breeds around the coasts of Great Britain, with the largest colonies on the Bass Rock (whence the species’ Latin name) and Borera, St Kilda.

In the United Kingdom, gannets are a protected species. However, a legal exception is made for the inhabitants of the district of Ness (also known as Nìs) of the Isle of Lewis who are allowed to kill up to 2000 gannets (locally known as guga) annually to serve as a traditional local delicacy—the taste is described as fishy.2"

Conservation status
Northern Gennet are on the IUCN list of threatened species – status: least concern
Although Northern Gannet populations are now stable, their numbers were once greatly reduced due to loss of habitat, removal of eggs and killing of adults.
