Puffins return to a new home

We are happy to share that the Sea Cliffs exhibit is back open and our feathered friends are adjusting nicely to their new home. This exhibit is home to our Atlantic puffins, razorbills and black guillemots and was closed this winter for renovations.

The actual layout of the exhibit did not change as it was already well designed to recreate the birds’ natural nesting environment. The habitat includes rocky outcroppings and a pool that holds nearly 6,500 gallons of water. According to our animal care staff, the Aquarium puffins behave much the same as they would in a natural habitat.

Our exhibits and design team gave the habitat a much-needed polish and added new visual elements to the rocky land. Watch as our Atlantic puffins, razorbills, and black guillemots return from their short sabbatical into a new, and updated home!

    YAY! We’ve been missing the puffins on our visits. Can’t wait to come back and see them again!

    I love those Puffins!
    Lovable scamps of birds.
