The Wandering Albatross is one of the world’s most fascinating sea birds with the largest wingspan of any living bird, measuring up to 3.5 metres. The lengthy wingspan of the albatross allows it to fly while hardly having to flap its wings. This impressive bird can travel vast distances, covering several thousand kilometers in just one week, and will fly further in their lifetime than any other bird on Earth. The Wandering Albatross is also one of the longest living birds in the world, living up to 50 years or more.
