Adopt A Puffin For Father's Day!

Poppa Puffin with Book
This Father's Day, honor a special Dad while helping to protect puffins! Puffin adoptions make a unique gift for a special Dad.

Puffins are model parents. They typically choose one mate for life and guard the nesting burrow from intruders for their long life of 30 or more years. During the nesting cycle, they share the incubation of the egg and after hatching bring in much of the food for the chick.

Here are some ways to honor a special Dad while helping puffins:

Adopt a Puffin. Our puffin adoptions include a biography and color picture of a puffin, a colorful certificate of adoption personalized with your Dad's name, and the option to receive our Project Puffin book or lens cleaning cloth. We will assign one of our special puffins to your Dad. 

Make a donation in honor of a special Dad. When you choose this option, he will be informed of your thoughtful donation to Project Puffin in his honor.

When adopting or donating online, please let us know that this is for Father's Day so we can process it accordingly. Write "FATHER'S DAY" in the Special Shipping Instructions box or the Additional Comments box when you donate. You can also tell us any other information that you need us to know regarding the processing of your adoption or donation in these boxes.

If you miss the boxes or have questions, just send an email to:
