Based on Puffin Island, North Wales, we focus on seabird research, with the aim of increasing the understanding of the biology and ecology of several species.

Current participants in seabird research on the island include members of: ThSCAN ringing group, The University of Liverpool, The University of Roehampton, Bangor University and the RSPB.
