With its comical walk, intriguing nature and big colourful bill, the puffin has long been a beloved icon for North Atlantic cultures. But puffins are also amazingly tough, spending 9 months of the year at sea. They have adapted to life in the most brutal habitat on earth outside of the arctic.
Their navigational abilities have always been a mystery, but now with advanced geo-tagging, pieces of the puzzle are coming together. Biologists describe puffins as the marine canary in the coal-mine. The oceans are the lungs of the planet. If hardy puffins can’t survive on the ocean, what does that mean for other species?
From Newfoundland’s majestic shores, to the puffin islands dotting the Gulf of Maine and ancient Skomer Island in Wales, we invite you to join our team of experts and puffin lovers on Puffin Patrol. International Distributor Earth Touch Films.
