Long lasting relationships are not unique to humans. Puffins often have remarkable faithfulness to their mates and some pairs may nest together for decades! This year, celebrate YOUR "someone special" by:
- Adopting a puffin for them. Adoption recipients will receive a biography and color picture of their puffin, an adoption certificate, and the option of receiving a book that tells the story of Project Puffin, a Project Puffin magnet, or lens cleaning cloth.
- Making a donation in honor or memory of someone.
- Visiting our online store to choose from our wide selection of gifts, including delicious "Puffin Pop" chocolates or a 3-D chocolate Puffin by Bixby, or perhaps the gift of silver and copper jewelry. There are many items and categories to choose from. Online Store special: Receive 15% off from your order with the special code "puffinlove" (adoptions not included).
When entering your information, please let us know that this is a Valentine’s Day adoption or donation by writing "puffinlove" in the Comments/Special Shipping Instructions box, so that we can process it accordingly. The deadline for Valentine orders and specials, and/or to submit puffin adoptions is February 5th by 5pm EST if they are to arrive by Valentine's Day.
Proceeds help us operate summer field stations in Maine to protect puffins and other seabirds.
