About Madeira - Europa 2021 - Endangered National Wildlife

Zino’s petrel or freira (Pterodroma madeira) feeds over a wide area in the central and eastern Atlantic Ocean, since it winters in the open sea.

During the breeding season these birds congregate in the ocean waters of Madeira and the Azores.
