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 are watching OGK (Orange, Green, Black) and YRK (Yellow, Red, Black). They have a chick that hatched on 26 January and fledged on 3 September 2022. A new Royal Cam nest will be chosen in December 2022.

Last season’s Royal Cam chick, Tiaki, can be found on the tracking map.
