WWF-Australia has an eggcellent solution to help the shy albatross.120 artificial nests made of cement and clay have been built and placed on Albatross Island – one of three small islands off the coast of Tasmania where the shy albatross breeds.

 

These nests will help improve survival rates of shy albatross eggs and chicks during the breeding season. Find out more by watching the video below!
