 The Big Bird Race
Ladbrokes is taking bets on the annual marathon migration of an albatross species in a bizarre event that attempts to raise international awareness of endangered species.

Seventeen Tasmanian Shy Albatrosses, which migrate about 9600km every year from Tasmania to South Africa, have been tagged with electronic transmitters and punters can bet on which bird will reach its destination first.
