The new ACAP web site goes live

In mid June it was discovered that the old ACAP web site was being repeatedly hacked into, causing serious difficulties with its operation, so much so that it had to be shut down.

The opportunity was taken while fixing the problem to redevelop the web site to a more modern and user-friendly design.

So our apologies are given to all for the lack of communication of late but welcome to the new site. Over the next few weeks we will be working to get all the documents previously available back on the site. As part of this the various resource and education documents have been updated, both to include recent publications and to take account of the inclusion of the three North Pacific albatrosses within the Agreement. A number of news stories that has accumulated of late will soon be posted to bring you up-to-date with the conservation of albatrosses and petrels.
