"Andrea Angel and her team work hard to mitigate the threats facing the world's pelagic seabirds with particular focus on by-catch mitigation and invasive species eradication on islands where seabirds breed. South Africa is a hotspot for foraging seabirds but these bountiful fish populations also attract many fishing vessels and trying to minimize the conflict between the fisherman and the fish-eating seabirds is a key element of the Albatross Task Force's work.  Join Andrea as she shares the incredible conservation work taking place on the high seas and in our harbours to help reduce the negative impacts of the fishing industry on our pelagic seabirds.  To contact Andrea please email This email address is being protected from spambots.
