Albatrosses and Petrels Need Your Help

1 Dec 2022 8:08 PM | Admin (Administrator)

Wisdom, the world's oldest known Laysan Albatross with its mate. Wisdom, the world's oldest known Laysan Albatross at 70 years of age (at least!), returned to Midway Atoll this year and successfully hatched another chick.

Albatrosses and petrels are some of the most endangered birds on the planet. These species spend most of their lives on the open ocean, but too often die tragic deaths after becoming hooked on fishing lines and drowning. To ensure the survival of these magnificent birds, we need international cooperation. The Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels coordinates and advances protections for these birds, but the United States has yet to sign on. Congress must pass legislation to enable the U.S. to join this treaty.
