World Albatross Day – Interview with DoC

Celebrating World Albatross Day .
The theme for this year is “Ensuring Albatross-friendly Fisheries”

You may recall a couple of months ago, a pair of Northern Royal albatross, our Royal Cam parents, had GPS trackers placed on them as apart of a wider study looking into the foraging patterns of Northern Royal Albatross at the Chatham Islands and at Taiaroa Head.

Seabirds spend most of their time on the ocean and while we are taking action to protect them on land, once they disperse to international waters we’re limited with what we can do. By tracking these birds we’ll be able to gather more information about Northern Royal Albatross movements, including where they interact with fishing fleets.

You can GPS track the Royal Albatross pair here:
