Not much is known about the migration patterns of albatross, but what is known is that they breed for just a couple months every few years, but in between that, they spend the rest of their life at sea. They circumnavigate the globe and the oceans, with no real migration patterns. They are all sort of scattered in many places, and always traveling and migrating.
Recent studies have revealed several previously unknown patterns in albatross migration:
1. Some birds circumnavigate the Southern Hemisphere.
2. Others were shown to remain close to their breeding grounds.
3. Others migrated to a region of the Indian Ocean.
Conservationists are interested in studying albatross migrations further so they can better understand and curtail the deleterious effects of long-line fishing on albatross populations.
