Laysan Albatross Cam Highlights 2014

20 August 2014

For 150 days viewers watched the lives of some very special Laysan Albatross on Kauai, Hawaii. From hatch to fledge we were amazed by the growth of young Kaloakulua and witnessed the vast variety of visitors she received including teenage Albatross practicing courtship dancing, George the Rooster, Mango her Albatross neighbor, a flock of Nenes and more!

Viewers were proud the day she stood for the first time, laughed the day a teenage Albatross tumbled into shot with an amusing landing and stunned when Kaloakulua cast a bolus containing plastics. Tears were shed with an emotional farewell when the juvenile finally fledged.

Thanks to the viewers and cam operators for making this season so memorable.

A special thanks to the Kauai Albatross Network, to the landowners and to donors for making this season possible.
