Atlantic Puffins have returned to nest at Eastern Egg Rock in Maine after decades of absence. Thanks to the work of seabird biologists from the National Audubon Society’s Project Puffin, this was the world’s first restored seabird colony. Through the use of decoys, audio recordings, and protections from predatory gulls, the project succeeded in recreating a thriving seabird colony and spreading successful restoration techniques to other sites around the globe.
