Sir David Attenborough's personal plea for albatrosses

Longtime supporter of the campaign to save these magnificent seabirds, Sir 
David Attenborough has once again voiced his concern for their plight.  

'One of my most memorable moments was sitting eyeball-to-eyeball with a 
wandering albatross chick on the remote Atlantic island of South Georgia. It is 
possible that this bird may have joined the hundreds of thousands of 
albatrosses which have died on a fisherman's longline' said Sir David.

'For an albatross, taking a fish from a baited hook is no different to a blue 
tit taking peanuts from a garden feeder. The contrast is that the albatross 
will pay the heaviest price of all for its meal - its life.' 

His passionate plea for these gentle giants of the oceans to be given a 
fighting chance can be found in full on the Save the Albatross Campaign website
