Project Puffin Visitor Center - educating the public on Maine seabird conservation efforts with fun presentations, educational films, books and interactive exhibits

Project Puffin Visitor CenterThe Project Puffin Visitor Center in Rockland introduces people of all ages to the amazing lives of puffins and other Maine seabirds. The Center celebrates the success of Project Puffin in bringing puffins and other rare Maine seabirds back to historic nesting islands along the Maine coast. At the Project Puffin Visitor Center, visitors can view puffins and other seabirds in real time through a remarkable video system that delivers live video to the Center. Visitors can also learn about the success and challenges faced by Audubon and its conservation partners to restore and protect the seabirds on Maine islands and beaches.

The walls of Project Puffin Visitor Center surround visitors with colorful murals, maps, and other fun educational information about seabird conservation in Maine, plus outstanding photographs of seabirds by Project Puffin photographer Bill Scholtz. Packed with interactive exhibits for people of all ages, Project Puffin Visitor Center features:

Puffin PresentationsReal-time video images and sounds of puffins and other seabirds from remote Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge, 20 miles south of Rockland, thanks to robotic cameras funded by grants from MBNA Foundation and the Disney Wildlife Conservation Fund. Visitors to the center can operate the camera remotely from the center changing and zooming in on different views of the colony, burn their own DVDs and print photos using the equipment.

A theater featuring the 20-minute film Project Puffin about exceptional people taking innovative action to bring puffins and other seabirds back to the Maine coast.
