Hello bird lovers... Lorne here...

On Wednesday afternoon, at the school where I teach, St. Aloysius College, 
Sydney, I'm presenting a forty minute lecture on albatross to 140 14 yr 
old boys as an intro to our topic of The Sea and The Rhyme of the Ancient 

I've pretty much got all I want to say in my head, but would love some 
suggestions re. info that the boys should know or stuff that would keep 
them enthralled during my chat as most would be prefering to play their X 
Box or looking at Zoo magazine or shooting sparrows with air rifles 

Can anyone give me up to date stats on numbers of albatross in the 
world... general conservation info...any websites I can suggest the boys 
look at etc.????

This is an important opportunity to spread info on these majestic species 
so the boys can think about conservation in the future, so any help would 
be deeply appreciated.
