Wandering albatrosses at South Georgia are in trouble. Their population has decreased by over 50% since the 1970s and is still decreasing. Like many other seabirds wandering albatrosses are accidentally hooked and drowned on longlines set for tunas and swordfish. This mortality is devastating the South Georgia population and must be stopped. The good news is that the deaths are preventable, but effective action is urgently needed to stop the wandering albatross from sliding to extinction.

This film describes the remarkable life history and oceanic travels of South Georgia wanderers, explains why their populations are sensitive to unnatural levels of mortality and seeks support for initiatives designed to secure the future of this iconic seabird.

Narrated by Sir David Attenborough.
