PUFFIN PATROL

Documentary - 44 minutes and 50 minutes

 

“Puffin Patrol” is an environmental film that features a majestic and tough bird that is now under threat. If puffins are in trouble, what does that say about us?

 

“Puffin Patrol” takes viewers into the world of the Atlantic puffin. Travel to remote locations where the puffin’s unique migration patterns and feeding habits are being studied. See where puffin populations are at risk and meet the biologists who study the bird’s greatest stressors. Follow the people of Witless Bay, Newfoundland as they rescue lost and confused pufflings from the roadside and see how this simple task teaches us about environment.

 

From majestic Newfoundland and Maine, to the rugged Isles of Wales, join our passionate team of scientists and puffin enthusiasts on the “Puffin Patrol”.
