Save the Albatross
Most albatrosses and several other seabird species are heading for extinction.
They are being unintentionally drowned in large numbers by "longline" fishing boats. Longlining is the single greatest threat to the world's seabirds. Much of it is carried out by "pirate" fishing boats.
BirdLife's Save the Albatross Campaign is trying to stop the needless slaughter of these magnificent birds by ensuring that relevant international agreements are implemented that will benefit both the birds and the legal fishing industry.
On the following pages find out about the problem, its solutions, BirdLife's Campaign and how you can help. You can also view photographs of some of the threatened species.
