Our mission is advancing the science of seabird conservation while encouraging protection and appreciation of seabird habitats worldwide.
Project Puffin’s decoy workshop was in full swing in December 2017, producing 150 Great Crested and Chinese Crested Tern decoys for a new conservation project in South Korea. The decoys will be used to help create a new nesting colony of Chinese Crested Terns. The Chinese Crested Tern is among the rarest seabirds on Earth and multiple sites within its historic range are key to its survival. Filling this decoy order marked the one year anniversary of ‘Mad River Decoys by Audubon’–conservation decoys made in Bremen, Maine.
