Introduction

Moana has fledged! On 6 September, she stretched her wings on land one last time and took off on her first sea voyage.

Moana will now spend several years at sea. We'll hopefully see her return in 4-10 years when she’s ready for chicks of her own. 

Royal cam will remain at Taiaroa Head for another year. It won't be long until more adults return and the breeding cycle begins all over again.
