Join us for a tufted puffin fundraiser that includes:
1) an educational zoom call (September 8 @4:30 PM) to learn all about the endangered tufted puffins of Washington
2) a 3-4 hour boat tour (September 12 @4:30 PM), with onboard educators Amanda Colbert and Amy Eberling, to journey to one of two remaining tufted puffin breeding islands in the Salish Sea! Here we will look for tufted puffins transitioning to their winter plumage, keep an eye out for possible new fledglings, and bid them a safe journey as they make their way to the Pacific for the winter.
We look forward to learning and observing with you!

My colonies in Washington are falling fast,
We need more research so we can last.

To discover what our decline is all about.
