World Albatross Day


On albatrosses and longline fishing from my column with Roundglass Sustain. Hundreds of albatrosses and other sea birds get caught as longline bycatch every year. In recent years, better cooperation between conservation organizations and fishermen has resulted in reduced mortality, by the application of simple measures like streamer lines.

The cartoon is also a small tribute to my favourite poem, The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, which I have always interpreted as an exploration of the relationship between man and the forces of nature.
