When Malden was visited in 1825 it was found to be uninhabited, but Lt. Malden –after whom the island is named- discovered remains of former (Polynesian) settlements. One reason they could have survived on this island is that they found large seabird colonies of at least 11 species, including Masked, Red-footed and Brown Boobies, Lesser Frigatebirds, Sooty and Grey-backed terns, as well as Blue-grey Noddies across the island.
