Our mission is advancing the science of seabird conservation while encouraging protection and appreciation of seabird habitats worldwide.
Scientists have been closely watching puffin populations in the Gulf of Maine in recent years, in an effort to restore the species on certain islands. This summer, puffins and other seabird populations appear to have rebounded, but are still facing a threat from predation.
