Unwind With Some Live-Streamed Puffin Footage
Puffins are often depicted hopping around the rocky shores of Iceland, but the birds can also be found right here in the states. If you can’t make it up to their native habitat in Maine, this live stream will take you directly into their seaside burrow.
The live puffin cam on explore.org provides 24/7 views of a puffin couple living in the Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge off the coast of Maine. The feed is maintained by Project Puffin, an initiative launched by the National Audubon Society in 1973 to revive the animal's population in Maine's gulf. Today, the region hosts over 4000 puffins each summer.
After living in breeding colonies during the spring and summer, puffins spend the remainder of the year on the open sea.
You can take an intimate look at how the birds pass their time inland below.
