A Puffin Reality Show

Move over Snooki and Jwoww. Atlantic Puffin seabirds now have their own reality show.

The National Audubon Society and Explore.org have set up two high definition cameras, and trained them on the hundreds of Atlantic Puffins and other seabirds on Seal Island, off the coast of Maine.

One camera focuses on the rocks and another is inside a Puffin burrow that’s home to a brand new chick, or Puffling. (Note: The chick is not always in the burrow.)

The live stream went up this week and offers round the clock insight into the lives of these threatened, yet magnificent seabirds.
