Dr. Stephen Kress of the Audubon Society discusses his seabird restoration work in partnership with the USFWS Maine Coastal Islands National Wildlife Refguge. The work was done on Seal Island, about 30 miles offshore. - The Service's primary focus at the Maine Coastal Islands NWR is colonial seabird restoration and management. Refuge islands provide nesting habitat for common, Arctic, and endangered roseate terns, Atlantic puffins, razorbills, black guillemots, Leach's storm-petrels, laughing gulls, and common eiders. During the last 25 years, the Service and its conservation partners have worked to reverse the decline in these birds' populations.
