AlbatrossInternational Celebration Day

First World Albatross Day celebrated by ALSA

The Antarctic Legacy of South Africa (ALSA) celebrates  with the  Agreement on the Conservation of Albatrosses and Petrels (ACAP) the First Wold Albatross Day on 19 June 2020. Over the years many Overwinter team members and Takeover Personnel have taken photo’s of Albatrosses. On the ALSA digital repository you will find  ore than 500 images of Albatrosses taken with people. There are also many video material and documents available. ALSA would like to share the Wandering Albatross Dance video clip with you taken in 2011 while ALSA was visiting Marion Island, the footage was taken from the Marion station.
