"I love puffins. They are small, round gothic birds, and their babies are called pufflings."
~ Caitlin Moran

Tufted Puffins are whimsical birds found along the West Coast of the United States from Central California up through Alaska - but for how much longer?  Hannah and Erik speak with three people who all have the same goal: fill in the knowledge gaps and promote conservation of Tufted Puffins.  Learn more about Tufted Puffins, what is being done to protect this species, and the people who care about them.
