Red-footed Booby

Inhabiting the tropics and subtropics of the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, the red-footed booby survives on a diet of fish and small octopi. Humans rarely see this species because it spends most of its time flying over water to feed. The future of the red-footed booby is threatened by the fishing industry and coastal development. Over-fishing in booby territory reduces their main food supply and depletion of trees and shrubs around tropical coasts has a negative impact on their distribution of habitats.
