Albatross Adoptions

These beautiful birds call New Island their home!

The Falkland Islands are the global stronghold for black-browed albatross, containing a massive 70% of the world’s population. The FC-owned New Island group of islands are recognised as a globally important seabird hotspot, supporting nearly 10% of the Falklands’ black-browed albatross population in their cliff-top rookeries.

Albatross pairs famously tend to mate for life, which for some of these birds can be over 50 years. They lay a single white egg in October, on top of striking nest pillars caringly constructed over years from guano and mud. Fledging chicks will be left by their parents in April and take their first ventures into the wider world on their own.

By adopting an albatross in the Falkland Islands you are making a valuable contribution to our practical conservation activities. Thank you.
