99.9% of Laysan albatrosses nest in the Hawaiian Archipelago. The rest live on other Pacific islands and in Mexico. Laysan populations seem to be spreading, with entirely new nesting colonies forming in some places. New colonies have sprung up on islets off Guadalupe Island, Mexico. This is probably due to the fact that invasive mammals that predate the colonies have not reached these islets. (Pitman 160)
