Albatrosses square measure among the most important of flying birds and species of the genus Diomedea (great albatrosses) have the longest wingspans of any extant birds, reaching up to three.7 m (12 ft.). The albatross's square measure sometimes thought to be falling into four genera, however, disagreement exists over the number of species.
Albatrosses square measure extremely economical within the air, mistreatment dynamic soaring and slope soaring to hide nice distances with very little effort. They go after squid, fish, and malacostracan crustacean by either scavenging, surface seizing, or diving. Albatrosses square measure colonial, nesting for the foremost half on remote oceanic islands, usually with many species nesting along. Combine bonds between males and females kind over many years, with the employment of 'ritualised dances', and last for the lifetime of the combine.

Of the twenty-two species of albatrosses recognised by the IUCN, all square measure listed as at some level of concern; 3 species square measure critically vulnerable, 5 species square measure vulnerable, seven species square measure close to vulnerable, and 7 species square measure vulnerable. Numbers of albatrosses have declined within the overdue to harvest for feathers, but today, the albatross's square measure vulnerable by introduced species, like rats and untamed cats that attack eggs, chicks, and nesting adults; by pollution; by a heavy decline in fish stocks in several regions mostly because of overfishing; and by longline fishing. Longline fisheries create the best threat, as feeding birds square measure interested in the bait, become hooked on the lines, and drown. Known stakeholders like governments, conservation organisations, and other people within the fishing trade square measure all operating toward reducing this sea creature.
