Infographics depicting the conservation threats faced by the Critically Endangered Tristan Diomedea dabbenena and Waved Phoebastria irrorata Albatrosses and Vulnerable Wandering Albatross D. exulans were produced to support World Albatross Day on 19 June 2021 and its chosen theme “Ensuring Albatross-friendly Fisheries”. The ACAP Species Infographics have been produced in the three ACAP official languages of English, French and Spanish. In addition, a Portuguese version of the Tristan Albatross infographic takes note that the species visits the waters of Brazil. The three infographics have been followed by a fourth, for the globally Endangered and Nationally Critical Antipodean Albatross Diomedea antipodensis, co-published with the New Zealand Department of Conservation.
.They have been designed to help inform the general public, including school learners. They serve to complement the more detailed and referenced ACAP Species Assessments and the more concise and illustrated ACAP Species Summaries. See below to view at full size.
The infographics may be freely downloaded at a high resolution to allow for printing professionally in two poster sizes (approximately A2 and A3). Please note they are only being made available for personal use or when engaging in activities that will aid in drawing attention to the conservation crisis faced by the world’s albatrosses and petrels – when ACAP will be pleased to receive a mention. Further infographics will be produced as new featured species are chosen to support future World Albatross Days.
