April : Puffin

Watch the North Atlantic puffin's beak change colour.

April marks the beginning of breeding season for puffins, when their beaks transform into an array of beautiful colours.

Did you know?

  • Atlantic puffins breed in colonies of up to 40,000 pairs on North Atlantic sea cliffs and islands.
  • One of the main threats to puffins is loss of prey due to over-fishing and climate change.
