Project Puffin: News From Pond Island

Observe the march of the terns.

Their circuit is small, a dimpled patch of sand that blends so quietly into the landscape that we might clumsily destroy their tiny haven. Luckily, the seabird biologists of Pond Island know the signs and appreciate the beauty of these small miracles that they protect throughout the breeding season.
