"An albatross owned by supermodel Jerry Hall is thought to have died during a 6,000-mile celebrity-backed migration 'race' to South Africa. The bird, named Aphrodite, was one of 18 Tasmanian Shy Albatrosses that began their migration from islands off Australia last month on a journey tracked on the Internet. Each bird was championed by a celebrity and Aphrodite, supported by Hall, was the favorite to complete the journey first in a so-called race designed to raise awareness of the albatross' plight.
