Puffins are returning to a small island that was once home to one of Britain's biggest colonies after conservationists cut down scrubs that had caused a dramatic crash in their numbers.

Glad to see that something as simple as clearing undergrowth helped the puffins although the reduction in numbers of sand eels is another problem!

noted, and with kind permission:crowfunding for puffins
Hello each,I'm forwarding this from my cousin Heather's son,(my second cousin?) he is looking for help with funding a project. He was on "The One Show" last year doing research into puffin behavior, and is continuing to put all his efforts into it. He studied at Oxford and Cambridge universities, and has contributed to quite a few books on the subject of puffins. Please pass it on to your friends if you think they may be interested. Thanks Jenny
Hi All, I recently signed up for a challenge to see if we could get people to contribute towards funding scientific projects. I decided to see if people would be interested in helping to track Puffin migrations. So I had to make an appeal and a video..
Here it is!

Witness my horrible voiceover! And here’s the rest of the projects that are looking to get funded!

Feel free to pass this round and see if anyone is interested! Apparently I have to convince people to contribute a little asap, so that it looks like it’s off to a good start! Rob x
