A Perfect Day for an Albatross and other Seabird Tales, Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument and Cordell Bank National Marine Sanctuary
Listen and watch Hawaiʻi Artist and Author Caren Loebel-Fried as she reads her wonderful book "A Perfect Day for An Albatross" and hosts a short discussion about her recent visit to Midway Atoll National Wildlife Refuge in Papahānaumokuākea. After the book reading we highlight three species of Pacific albatross that cross the vast Pacific Ocean to forage in the productive waters off California and breed and nest in the predator-free remote tropical islets of Hawaiʻi. These seabirds and other species provide insight into the health of our oceans, and highlight the impacts of massive amounts of plastic entering our oceans.
