Galapagos  Waved Albatros  World's population Punta Suarez  Hood Island  Photograph  Mate for Life  Single egg  IUCN Redlist Vulnerable Grace and Elegance (Waved Albatross).jpg

 

Grace and Elegance

"The world's entire population of Waved Albatross come to the Galapagos purely to breed. They come specifically to Punta Suarez on Hood Island which is a flat open area near high cliffs that face into the prevailing winds. Take-off is achieved by running into the wind or simply dropping off the cliff and opening their great wings. The Waved Albatross mates for life and this magnificent bird has a look of pride, patience, elegance and experience about her. She was sitting on one egg which she will have incubated for 60 days. The tubes on the bill are used to excrete excess salt. The Waved Albatross is categorised in the 2006 IUCN Red List of Threatened Species as Vulnerable. "
