A recent crash in puffin numbers on islands off the coasts of northeast Britain could be down to worsening conditions in the North Sea, say scientists.

Interesting, that nobody noticed them in these other areas. We still have so much to learn.

I love puffins and hope that they can save these beautiful, special birds in spite of the North Sea conditions!

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 hereís 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 itís off to a good start! Rob x
