The commercial fishing technique of 'longlining' is the predominant threat to many Albatross species worldwide.
Studies have shown that nearly 100,000 Albatross are killed every year due to long lines.
Extending for miles with hundreds or thousands of baited hooks, the fishy long lines attract Albatross, who become easily entangled and drown after attempting to feed on the bait.
The International Union for the Conservation of Nature (IUCN) sates that 19 out of the 21 species of Albatross around the world are now threatened.
