How Puffins Have Divided This Canadian Town
Off the coast of the picturesque town of Witless Bay in Newfoundland sits a four-island ecological reserve home to over 600,000 pairs of puffins. The locals love these seabirds—so much so that they run a Puffin Patrol to protect lost chicks who get stranded on shore. However, not everyone in town agrees on how to keep the puffins safe. The disagreement has spurred on a community-wide conflict that has pit neighbor against neighbor—with the puffins at the center of it all.
