These two species correspond to the two nesting albatross in Chilean sub-Antarctic waters, which represent ~20% of their respective global populations.

The known nest sites are concentrated in six colonies in the Magallanes region, between Diego de Almagro Island (51º S) and the Diego Ramírez archipelago (56º S) in the extreme south of South America.

In Chile these albatrosses were considered practically inexistent in the international scientific literature until the 1980’s.

They became recognised as Chilean natural heritage during the first scientific expedition dedicated to birds by the young Roberto Schlatter and Guillermo Riveros in the summer of 1980-81.

That is how the populations of these special birds and their ample range within and beyond national waters have permitted the generation of a new understanding of our role with the ocean.

By monitoring albatrosses we have also developed a closer comprehension of the anthropogenic impact on the marine environment.

Amongst those impacts, seabird bycatch in fisheries is one of the most important, and where the albatross account for the persistence or change in our habits.
