Our mission is advancing the science of seabird conservation while encouraging protection and appreciation of seabirds worldwide.
July 4th, 2021- the 40th anniversary of the first "PUFFIN WITH FISH!" sighting. In 1981, this exclamation marked the return of Atlantic Puffins nesting on Eastern Egg Rock. It was a very special moment for all. The "Anniversary Puffin" in the photo below was banded as an adult in 2017 (band code "GH76") and is nicknamed "Lamby". The puffin is carrying on the tradition of raising a puffling on Eastern Egg Rock, 40 years after Project Puffin developed the seabird restoration techniques that now benefit more than a quarter of all seabird species worldwide.
