005 It's The First World Albatross Day!  Let's talk Albatrosses! Nina DaRocha and Steph Prince from the Albatross Task Force

The Albatross Task Force is protecting albatross species all over the world and you can talk to the experts!


It's the very first World Albatross Day, and a dedicated group of bird field workers, hardy seafarers and research academics are doing their best to reduce the unnecessary deaths as a result of commercial fishing and the by-catch mortality of many seabirds, but especially albatross species. Nina DaRocha & Stephanie Prince of the Albatross Task Force tell us all about it.

Get involved and attend the special events to mark the first World Albatross Day and raise awareness about the hard work & the successes as a result of co-operation between the fishing industry and the various conservation and regulatory bodies. It's a good news story!

Please get involved. The live  Q&A event with albatross experts is TODAY Friday 19th June at 12pm BST.
