|Reproductive Constraints/ Heat Stress||
Northern Royal Albatross are slow to reproduce. They lay just one egg every other year and the survival of that egg is put at risk by increasing global temperatures. At Taiaroa Head in New Zealand, where nesting albatross are carefully monitored, both egg and chick mortality due to heat stress has been steadily increasing.
