Three Royal Albatross chicks born in Dunedin

From Morning Report, 8:24 am on 22 January 2019

Three royal babies arrived in Dunedin this week - at the Royal Albatross Colony. The first three chicks of the breeding season have hatched and DOC workers are hopeful this season will be the best yet for the colony. Last year extreme weather conditions resulted in a high number of failed nests and only 13 chicks fledged. Hoani Langsbury is the manager of operations at the Royal Albatross Centre. He talks to Guyon Espiner.
