    Royal Albatross Center

    by dragontml Written Dec 14, 2003

    Favorite thing:
    The Royal Albatross, one of the largest seabirds, is a gliding phenomenon. It regularly circumnavigates the globe, sometimes aloft for days on end. Ranging effortlessly on the prevailing winds, it spends little more than a tenth of its long life on land.

    Taiaroa Head on the Otago Peninsula is unique, having the only mainland colony of albatross in the world and one which is within the bounds of a city. Visitors to Dunedin can travel easily along the scenic peninsula to see and learn about the albatross and the many other features of unique Taiaroa.
