The recovery of Atlantic puffins in the Northeast U.S. took many years, and now that their populations have rebounded since the late 19th century, citizens and scientists are keeping a close eye on the species to see how climate change will impact their populations.
One way they’re doing this is by keeping track of the fish being carried back to chicks in the puffins’ beaks via webcam. Are they good healthy fish? Are they fish normally found in the area?
