Today we went to James Campbell National Wildlife Refuge. When we went over to Kahuku, we talked with Aunty Leilani. She told us about the Albatross, which if you didn’t know, are these big beautiful birds. Their wings are about 7 to 8 feet long and boy let me tell you that those wings are huge. Another thing we learned was that they only lay one egg each year, most of the time they mate with the same bird or sometimes they mate with another bird. A cute thing the birds do is they dance, they go to sleep at many times in a year, and they like to chase people thats bothering them since they aren't used to being around humans. The Albatross eats fish and squid. How the babies eat at the Refuge is they blend up the fish and squid and they stick a tube down the mouth and that is how the babies eat. After we finished looking at the Albatross, we paired up in groups and we walked along the beach and picked up the trash that was washed up onto the beach. When we picked up trash off of the beach, we found brushes, tooth brush, floaters, ropes, plastic, cigarette buts, and so much more. The trash or marine debris on the beaches are harmful to these birds because they think it's food and can't process it. We feel good that we could be a part of this program to protect these special birds!
