16th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
The traveller

Albatrosses are one of the most endangered groups of birds in the world, with 14 of the 22 species facing extinction. Some species are particularly vulnerable to plastic pollution. We don’t want to lose our marine wildlife, and this iconic image of a solitary albatross after the storm is our reminder that we need to act now to avoid their extinctions.
