The Pyramid (Tarakoikoia)[1] is a small island south of Pitt Island in the Chatham Islands group of New Zealand. The site has been identified as an Important Bird Area by BirdLife International because it supports the only known breeding colony of Chatham Albatrosses, with 4575 pairs recorded in 2001.[2]
