Red-footed boobies are found in tropical and sub-tropical waters across the globe (they are found in the Oriental, Ethiopian, Neotropical, and Australian regions; they are also found on oceanic islands). They take long hunting trips of up to 150 km from their breeding grounds but do not migrate. One of the largest populations is on the Galapagos Islands.
