Bird Chat: Seabird Nesting and Project Puffin by Brian Cammarano (Virtual)
September 30 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join Orange Audubon Society (OAS) to hear all about Project Puffin on September 2nd at 7 p.m. on OAS’ Bird Chat. Our presenter will be our friend Brian Cammarano who has spent the summer working in Maine as part of this project.
The National Audubon Society started Project Puffin in 1973 in an effort to learn how to restore puffins to historic nesting islands in the Gulf of Maine. Today, Project Puffin refers to the active seabird restoration programs for puffins and other Maine seabirds as well as many public education programs.
In Maine and beyond, Project Puffin is also known as Audubon’s Seabird Restoration Program as it actively works to share restoration methods to benefit rare and endangered seabirds worldwide while building a culture of seabird conservation and appreciation. Project Puffin has a year round staff of seven which increases to about fifty during the seabird breeding season in spring and summer, including interns and volunteers.
Project Puffin is based in Ithaca, NY at the Cornell Lab of Ornithology and the Todd Wildlife Sanctuary, Bremen on mid-coast Maine. It is part of the Science Division of the National Audubon Society.
