"Every year, the albatross covers a distance of more than 190,000 km. This is equivalent to driving the entire length of New Zealand 84 times."

With a wingspan of three meters, the Toroa, or Royal Albatross, can fly up to 115 km an hour. The Toroa lives for over 60 years, and spends 87% of its long life at sea.

Meet this amazing bird – an important part of New Zealand’s heritage – and discover how we can conserve it as a legacy for the future.
