Puffins live and nest in large colonies, diving for fish off their island and coastal homes. In both North America and Europe, puffins have struggled against the threats of hunting, invasive species and loss of habitat. Because they nest so close together, a threat at one island, such as an oil spill, can have a significant effect on the local population.
How Your Adoption Helps Protect Puffins: Puffins need clean beaches and oceans full of fish to survive. Oceana works to protect puffins and other marine life by fighting to stop the expansion of offshore drilling that can threaten their habitats with oil spills and by promoting responsible fishing. All donations go toward making our world's oceans healthier and safer, for generations to come.
