THE ROYAL ALBATROSS
Preserving the Royal Albatross and their young
The Royal Albatross spends over 85% of their lives at sea. Returning to land only to breed and raise their young. Slow reproduction rates, changes in habitat and climate, and some fishing practices make the Royal Albatross vulnerable.
Protecting the Royal Albatross is vital to safeguarding its unique ecological role, maintaining biodiversity, and preserving a national treasure. It ensures the long-term survival of this majestic species for future generations to appreciate and cherish.
The Royal Albatross Centre is a not-for-profit organisation under the Otago Peninsula Trust which has been protecting and conserving wildlife, including the Northern Royal Albatross for over 50 years.
