Imagine that you are a wandering albatross, the largest flying bird in the world. You cover vast tracts of the Southern Ocean, flying up to 15,000 kilometres on a single foraging trip.

For comprehensive information on the current status of international albatross conservation see the Agreement for the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels.
