Watch the northern royal albatross at Pukekura/Taiaroa Head on Royal Cam.

Royal Cam is a 24-hour live stream of an albatross nest during the breeding season.

This season (2021/22) we watched OGK (Orange, Green, Black) and YRK (Yellow, Red, Black) raise a chick – named Lilibet in honour of Queen Elizabeth II. She hatched on 26 January and fledged on 3 September 2022. 

A new Royal Cam nest will be chosen in December 2022.
