Tufted puffins typically select islands or cliffs that are relatively inaccessible to predators, close to productive waters, and high enough that they can take to the air successfully.

During the breeding season tufted puffins develop a white face with long golden feathers down either side of their heads. They are not considered endangered, but numbers are much lower today than they once were. At Living Coasts we are home to 8 tufted puffins.
 

how do i adopt a tufted puffin?

First choose the adoption package you wish to purchase from the options below, and then make your animal selection.

Adoptions apply to the species rather than individual animals. This is because some of our animals may move to other zoos as part of breeding programmes. If your adopted species moves, we will advise you and you will be given the opportunity to transfer your adoption to another species.
