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


Map of NZ with Dunedin highlighted.

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

This means it will be left alone at the nest for long periods while both parents head to sea to forage.

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