Help save albatrosses!

This winter two of our adult Wandering albatrosses have been killed through interactions with fishing vessels. These are the ones we know about – it is likely that others have been killed and not reported. The chicks of these birds are unlikely to survive since they are only being fed by one parent.

You can help to protect albatrosses and other marine life by only buying fish and seafood that is certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC). Look out for the blue MSC label when you buy fish:

MSC certified products are available from many UK retailers, including Asda, Co-op, Marks & Spencer, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose. Retailers in the US include Safeway, Wal-mart and Whole Foods. You can find out more about MSC certified products and where to buy them at:

Please help save these amazing birds!
