Seychelles Bird Records Committee (SBRC) collects and assesses sightings of all birds recorded in the Exclusive Economic Zone of Seychelles. As at 31st May 2013, 265 species have been accepted to the THE SEYCHELLES LIST maintained by SBRC. More information is needed and this is a subject to which anyone with an interest in birds can contribute by sending a record form to SBRC with details of any rare visitors to Seychelles.
Seychelles EEZ covers an area of 1,332,031 square kilometres. It extends 200 nautical miles from the nearest island except along the southern boundary where it is restricted by territorial waters of (from west to east) Tanzania, Comoros, France (Ile Glorieuses), Madagascar, France (Tromelin) and Mauritius (Agalega)
