This specie spends most of its live in the Amsterdam Island, a volcanic isle located in the Indian Ocean. (coordinates: 37°49′33″ | 77°33′17″E).
Sadly, only about 170 birds remain. They differ from other albatross species by being slighty smaller, slightly browner plumage and laying eggs at a different time of the year. The bird is endangered due to the introduction of domestic animals and also the birds are getting tangled up with fishing lines and die.
