    The Laysan albatross supermom is at least 68 years old, according to U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service officials, and has given birth to and raised at least 31 chicks in her lifetime.

    Wisdom was first banded as an adult in 1956 by biologist Chandler Robbins, who was studying the colony at Midway.
