Bijna alle Kleine Alken worden langs de kust gezien, met name bij harde aanlandige winden. De meeste waarnemingen vallen tussen eind oktober en half december. De soort is meestal schaars, maar soms passeren vele honderden (of meer) Kleine Alken de zeetrektelposten. Dan wordt de soort ook schaars waargenomen in de kustprovincies of zelfs in het diepe binnenland.
The Birds Directive focuses on the conservation of all naturally occurring wild bird species in Europe, including the Little Auk.
This means that EU Member States must take measures to maintain or bring the populations of these species to a level that corresponds in particular to ecological, scientific and cultural requirements.
The Birds Directive requires Member States to maintain habitats for birds of sufficient size and quality, including through the designation of Special Protection Areas for the benefit of the European Natura 2000 network. No special protection zones have been designated for the Little Auk in the Netherlands. The national population must be able to maintain itself at a favorable level.
The conservation status of the Little Auk as non-breeding bird in the Netherlands is unknown.
