Birdathon

Your tax-deductible gift to Project Puffin will help us protect most of Maine’s puffins and over 40,000 Maine seabirds this summer!

Correctly guess the number of bird species that we will see on Birdathon day, and win a limited edition, signed and numbered lithograph by Swedish artist Karl Mårtens. This print is from a series of 150 prints.]

Each summer Project Puffin staff, researchers and volunteers devote 1 day each spring to birdwatching on our seabird sanctuaries and across the state of Maine. We’ll compile the results and report back the total number of species and the total number of puffins that we see.

Your tax-deductible gift to Project Puffin will help us protect most of Maine’s puffins and over 40,000 Maine seabirds this summer!
