NAMANU RRUNI/ALBATROSS ISLAND
Albatross Island is a magical place. Eighteen hectares of conglomerate rock off the north western tip of Tasmania, it is home to 5,200 breeding pairs of albatross. In the 1800s they were harvested to near extinction, but the population gradually recovered to half the estimated historical size. In recent years, however, the population has begun to again decline.
