Diego Ramirez is the southern-most Albatross breeding site in the world lying 100 km south of Cape Horne on the edge of the Chilean Continental shelf. Globally significant populations of black-browed and grey-headed albatrosses inhabit this site. They face a myriad of problems without proper tracking. We need to know where they go in their "off" season and how they overlap with fisheries. We need more tracking devices and we need to support the Chilian university student currently gathering information on the site. Please HELP US - SAVE THE ALBATROSS!
