Three threatened seabird species (Short-tailed Albatross, Chinese Crested-tern and Japanese Murrelet) breed only in the Asia region, two breed in eastern Asia and in the U.S.A. (Blackfooted Albatross and Red-legged Kittiwake), and two are nonbreeding visitors to the Asian region from Christmas Island (Australia) (Abbott’s Booby and Christmas Island Frigatebird). These threatened seabirds are mainly concentrated in north-east Asia, particularly on islands in Japan.
