The ACAP Species Infographic for the Black-browed Albatross is released in three more languages

Black browed Albatross Infographic web version French
The ACAP Species Infographic series is designed to help inform the general public, including school learners, of the threats faced by albatrosses and what is being and can be done to combat them. They serve to complement the more detailed and referenced ACAP Species Assessments, the concise and illustrated ACAP Species Summaries and the ACAP Photo Essay series.

To date, 10 species infographics have been produced. Sponsored by the Australian Antarctic Program, the most recent, for the Black-browed Albatross Thalassarche melanophris, was released last month in its English version.  All the infographics are being produced in ACAP’s three languages, and today ACAP is releasing the French and Spanish versions for the Black-browed Albatross. In addition, a Portuguese version takes note that the species visits the waters of Brazil (a Party to the Agreement). Previously, a Portuguese version was produced for the Critically Endangered Tristan Albatross Diomedea dabbeneena. Other ACAP-listed species that regularly visit Brazilian waters will also have infographics produced in Portuguese.

The 10 infographics produced to date may be freely downloaded at a high resolution to allow for printing professionally in two poster sizes (approximately A2 and A3). English and Portuguese language versions of infographics are available to download here, whilst French and Spanish versions can be found in their respective language menus for the website under, Infographies sur les espèces and Infographía sobres las especies.

Please note they are only being made available for personal use or when engaging in activities that will aid in drawing attention to the conservation crisis faced by the world’s albatrosses and petrels – when ACAP will be pleased to receive a mention.
