About this book

The albatross captivates human imaginations in a way that few other birds do. Perhaps its their elegant mastery of the air over vast oceans, for albatrosses have the largest wingspan of any bird on the planet, reaching up to 11 feet. But they are also a cause for concern; 19 out of 22 species are under threat due to conflicts with commercial fishing. Urgent action is required if we are to save them from extinction.
