Save the Puffins

With Scottish Seabird Centre

Puffins are one of the UK's most beloved and iconic seabirds, but they are currently under threat due to a range of factors including climate change, overfishing, and habitat loss.

The UK's puffin population has declined by over 30% in the past decade, and they are now listed as "vulnerable" to extinction by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN).

There are several reasons why it is important to help puffins in the UK. First and foremost, puffins are an important indicator species for the health of marine ecosystems.

By protecting puffin populations, we can help to ensure the health and sustainability of the entire marine environment. 

Additionally, puffins are an important part of the UK's natural and cultural heritage, and their loss would be a significant blow to the country's biodiversity and tourism industry. 

Charities working to protect puffins in the UK are focusing on measures such as habitat restoration, reducing pollution and overfishing, and monitoring and research to better understand the factors that are contributing to their decline. 

By supporting these efforts, we can help to ensure that future generations will be able to enjoy the sight of these beautiful birds on the UK's coastlines.

The population of puffins in the UK has declined by over 30% in the past decade, and they are now listed as "vulnerable" to extinction.

The Scottish Seabird Centre is a charity based in North Berwick, Scotland, that aims to promote the conservation and welfare of seabirds in the UK. Their work is important because seabird populations in the UK have been declining for decades due to a range of factors including climate change, habitat loss, and pollution.

The charity's main focus is on education and public engagement, with a range of exhibits, events, and activities designed to raise awareness of the importance of seabirds and their habitats. They also carry out research and monitoring of seabird populations, working with partner organisations to develop conservation strategies and implement practical measures to protect these birds.

In addition to their work on seabirds, the Scottish Seabird Centre also operates a rescue and rehabilitation centre for marine wildlife, providing care and support to sick and injured animals such as seals, otters, and dolphins. Overall, their work is vital for ensuring the continued survival of Scotland's rich and diverse marine ecosystem, and for inspiring the next generation of conservationists and wildlife enthusiasts.
