The Last Albatross: The ice blue wilderness of the southern Ocean, dotted with the  occasional iceberg or floe, and down there is an Albatross, I know it’s there because I put it there, but it will take a lot of finding, as indeed the real thing will take too in the not so far future. Long lines of the modern fishing industry are killing many tens of thousands of Albatrosses every year.Like the also threatened Sharks, they are long lived slow breeding creatures that cannot stand much more of what is going on…high profile people like Dame Ellen MacArthur (see my inks page) have taken action to raise awareness of the Albatrosses plight, alas, the long lines continue there indiscriminate plunder of the Ocean.

Long lines of the modern fishing industry are killing many tens of thousands of Albatrosses every year.  So is discarded plastic, especially throw away cigarette lighters, bottle tops and similar, mistaken for squid and fed to their young with dire
consequences.
