The Royal Albatross Centre is owned and operated by the Otago Peninsula Trust; New Zealand’s oldest not for profit charitable conservation trust.

Donations to the Royal Albatross Centre/ Otago Peninsula Trust, will help us support Royal Albatross care by assisting us to keep our centre open, to host visitors on tours and raise funds to support the Department of Conservation Rangers with their albatross kaitiaki.

The funds we raise through tours, hosting visitors in our cafe and selling gifts has plummeted due to covid-19. This means our ability to raise funds and help with albatross care and education is extremely limited. We’re committed to staying open and sharing albatross with visitors – but we need your help!

We’ll be able to continue our critical work on albatross promotion; inspiring people to care about wildlife and our environment making a difference to albatross survival.
