The Chatham Albatross (Thalassarche eremita), also known as the Chatham Mollymawk, is a seabird of the open oceans, patrolling the southern Pacific for fish, krill and squid prey. The remarkable thing is that these majestic birds, which glide over thousands of square miles of the ocean all return to a single small rocky pinnacle south of the Chatham Islands known as Pyramid Rock to breed. Such a tiny localisation of a species immediately puts it at risk and together with the pressures of oceanic change forged by climate change and the impacts of commercial fishing pressure, these birds are listed as Critically endangered. In an effort to reduce the risks to the species the Taiko Trust has embarked on a brave project to establish a second colony on main Chatham Island.
