The Salvin's Albatross is an albatross species, belonging to the 'mollymauk' group, that breeds in sub-Antarctic islands off New Zealand, especifically in the Snares and the Bounty Islands.


It is estimated that the total population of this albatross might reach 380,000 individuals. During the non-breeding season, a large part of the population disperse eastward through the South Pacific to South America, being one of the most common albatross species in Chilean waters.


This picture was taken last March during a pelagic trip off Valparaiso, central Chile.
