Explore albatross biology and their conservation with colorful art and engaging, informative text.

Off the California coast, albatrosses soar effortlessly over the churning sea and through storms. These ancient creatures have been misunderstood by humans throughout history, blamed for bad weather on ships, ridiculed for their clumsy gait on land. But what is life really like for an albatross? Family-friendly exhibit Albatross: Life on the Wind and Sea sweeps you into the world of this mysterious seabird.

Albatrosses spend 95% of their lives over the open ocean, but they need to be on land to nest. In this exhibit, Hawai‘i/California artist and author Caren Loebel-Fried tells the story of a nesting Laysan Albatross - one of the three albatross species found along the northern Pacific Coast. Loebel-Fried spent five weeks on Midway Atoll counting nesting albatrosses and researching for art she was commissioned to create for the US Fish and Wildlife Service. There, she fell in love with albatrosses, and hopes their story will bring people, especially children, closer to the natural world and want to help care for it.

Fully researched and scientifically accurate, this exhibit explores albatross biology and their conservation, with engaging, informative text and colorful, visually stunning art images.

The exhibition includes:

  • 12 canvas banners on wooden dowels, each 24” x 36”
  • Informational AND prose text panels designed for viewers of all ages, plus an Intro and Artist Statement
