Albatross at Taiaroa Head

Watch Moana the northern royal albatross chick and her parents at Pukekura/Taiaroa Head near Dunedin.


Map of NZ with Dunedin highlighted.

Moana hatched on 21 January and is currently in the post guard stage.

This means she will be left alone at the nest for long periods her parents head to sea to forage.

Our rangers weigh Moana on Tuesdays at 2pm, so tune in each week to see how much she's grown.
