This is the third video from an animated series, created by ‘Projeto Albatroz’.


The incredible ability of albatrosses to quench their thirst with sea water is approached in a fun way with the character Sophia, who, being a species called Royal, prefers to drink it from straws.


About ‘Albatrupe’

The fun ‘Albatrupe’ class was created to raise awareness of the conservation of albatrosses and petrels. The characters are productions by LightStar Studios, which has already participated in the development of animations such as ‘Ice Age’, ‘Mulan’, ‘Snoopy’ and ‘Asterix’.

The species chosen as characters were selected according to the degree of extinction and occurrence in Brazil. The details of each one’s personality are close to the biological behavior of birds. The characters are: Téo, Fred, Tristão, Judith, Alba, Tina, Sophia. Thanks to Petrobras’ sponsorship, through the Petrobras Socio-environmental Program, Albatrupe is featured in comics, comic strips, videos and promotional materials for the Albatroz Project.


About ‘Projeto Albatroz’ (Project Albatross)

Albatrosses are migratory seabirds and spend most of their lives on the high seas, where they interact with longline fisheries. The target of this industrial fishing technique is big fish like tuna. Unintentionally, fishing can also catch albatrosses and petrels. Reducing this bycatch is Project Albatross ‘s biggest mission .

The work we develop is maintained by the Albatroz Institute, which is a Civil Society Organization of Public Interest (OSCIP). In order for our mission to be fulfilled, we work in partnership with the Government, fishing companies and fishermen.

Our main line of action is the development of research to support public policies and the promotion of environmental education actions with fishermen and schools.
