The short-tailed albatross was once considered extinct having been over-hunted for its soft chest feathers which were highly desired for bedding. However, the work of one Japanese conservationist saved the species. Twenty years after the species was deemed extinct nesting birds were found in remote and dangerous areas of Torishima Island. By using decoys and recordings of the birds' courtship calls young breeding pairs were encouraged to create new colonies in safer areas on the island - today the number of these rare albatrosses has soared to over 2,000 breeding individuals. Tui De Roy takes us to the remote Torishima Island to witness these beautiful, rare albatrosses at the center of an extraordinary conservation success story.
