Rhinoceros auklet (Cerohinca monocerata) inhabit in Teuri Island, Hokkaido, Japan. Teuri Island is well known as the largest breeding ground of rhinoceros auklets in the world during their migration from spring to summer. It is said that six hundred thousand of rhinoceros auklets are nesting in Teuri Island and they have been under protection by the Ministry of the Environment of Japan. Among alcid species, rhinoceros auklet had high Hg contents. This might be correlated with the fact that this species mainly feed on Japanese anchovy (Engraulis japonica) which had high concentration of Hg.
