The National Audubon Society launched Project Puffin in 1973 in an effort to learn how to restore puffins to historic nesting islands in the Gulf of Maine.
Now known as Audubon’s Seabird Institute, we work to share restoration methods that benefit rare and endangered seabirds worldwide. Through active restoration on seven seabird colonies in the Gulf of Maine, we listen and amplify what seabirds tell us about climate change, forage fish management, proposed offshore wind development, and other ocean conservation challenges.
