Saving Planet Earth - Series 1 - Carol Thatcher: Saving Albatross


Celebrities investigate the issues, search out solutions and see how we can all be involved in saving planet earth's wildlife. Journalist Carol Thatcher visits the Falkland Islands to meet the Black-browed Albatross. She discovers that these long-distance flyers mate for life and travel hundreds of miles in search of a meal. However, an estimated 100,000 albatross are being caught and drowned on fishing hooks every year, and at this rate they're headed for extinction.
