Wisdom, The Midway Albatross: Surviving the Japanese Tsunami and Other Disasters for Over 60 Years

by Darcy Pattison

This is the first book in an award series of biographies of individual animals (NOT the species as a whole).

Wisdom, the Midway Albatross tells the story of the oldest known wild bird in the world, and how she survived the Japanese tsunami. She’s over 65 years old. In this ongoing tale, on February 4, 2017, Wisdom hatched a new chick. Learn how she survived the dangers of living wild, plastic pollution, longline fishing, lead poisoning, and the Japanese earthquake.
