PUFFINPALOOZA

Maine Maritime Marvels On Display

Who doesn't love puffins? These brightly colored seabirds are one headline attraction of this craggy cluster of pristine islands off the coast of Maine. By the mid-20th century hunters had nearly wiped out Maine's puffin population. However, after decades of concerted conservation, the birds are making a comeback. Other attractions include Arctic Terns and other seabirds.

This Atlantic region is already feeling the effects of climate change. A recent spate of puffin breeding failures are thought to be caused by warming ocean waters and changes in the abundance of suitable food for puffin nestlings.
