Albatrosses patrol seas looking for illegal fishing

Two hundred of the birds were fitted with GPS trackers that detect radar emissions from ships, and the results of the tracking were published this week.

Earlier I spoke to the lead author of the study, Henri Weimerskirch from the French National Centre for Scientific Research.
