Adopt-a-Puffin

You can help by adopting a puffin!

It is easy to adopt a puffin!

Adopt one or more of Project Puffin's Atlantic Puffins, some of which our staff have studied for 35 years or more! With each $100 (tax-deductible) adoption, you will receive the following items: 

  • Certificate of Adoption: A colorful certificate displaying your name. 
  • Biography: Includes detailed information gathered by our researchers about an individual puffin from the time it hatched to the present; a summary of the puffin's most recent behavior, nesting, and other activities; and a current color picture. 
  • Project Puffin book: The option of receiving the book: Project Puffin: How We Brought Puffins Back to Egg Rock by Stephen Kress.

We will send you a renewal letter when it is time to renew your adoption.
