YouTube Terms of Service. With nearly 10, seabirds residing on Taiaroa Head, the wildlife viewing opportunities at this site are immense, but timing is everything. Some species are only present for part of the year, others are nocturnal with their land based activities; others, like the giant albatross, prefer certain weather where there is wind to soar.
Thanks to the efforts of the New Zealand Department of Conservation, the Northern Royal Albatross nesting at Taiaroa Head have been banded, and their individual histories have been recorded through prior nesting seasons.
In earlier times both adults and chicks could royal cams from heat exhaustion. There is now a sprinkler system that sprays water over the nest to cool the birds on hot days. Hot conditions during hatching is a major problem as adults will stand up to cool themselves, leaving the egg exposed to risk of fly strike. Albatross chicks can take 6 days to complete the hatch.
Any fly eggs or live maggots laid in the egg during this period will often result in a dead chick. This has reduced fly strike. Predator traps for feral cats and mustelids are used for what is probably the longest running predator control program in New Zealand. Providing supplementary food to chicks is important if a parent goes missing before the chick fledges.
A chick may die of starvation otherwise as it takes two parents all their energy to raise one chick, and then they need a year off from breeding.
Increasingly, chicks with both parents are being supplementary fed if for some reason the parents do not bring back enough food for them to survive the winter. Multiple groups are working to help increase awareness about the Northern Royal Albatross nesting at Taiaroa Head. In addition, the publicly-accessible Royal Albatross Centre also located at Taiaroa Head provides opportunities for visitors to view the wildlife and to learn more about the importance of conserving the thousands of seabirds nesting there.
