On a tiny island near the coast of South Georgia Island, a courting male albatross bonds with its lifelong mate. The wandering albatross, with an eleven-foot wingspan, is clearly the king of ocean birds, but overfishing and destructive longline nets threaten its survival in southern oceans. Some nets stretch up to sixty miles and snare fish and birds indiscriminately.
