Passionate About Watching Birds? Volunteer From Home!
National Audubon’s Project Puffin and The Friends of Hog Island is looking for volunteers to help operate live cameras that will be watching puffins, ospreys, and owls this summer. Streaming live on explore.org we have had millions of viewers tuning in each year to watch with us!
Volunteers will monitor multiple cameras remotely from their home computers. If you have a passion for birds and a good Internet connection, you could watch these magnificent creatures throughout their summer breeding season.
No experience necessary! Training and guidance will be provided- if you love birdwatching, or are already a fan of our livecams, this would be a great way for you to enhance your experience!
These high definition cameras on Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge (outer Penobscot Bay) and on Hog Island (Muscongus Bay) will capture the dramatic events unfolding through the season as the chicks try to overcome predators, weather, and competition from other birds.
On Seal Island, there will be several cameras streaming live the activities of the colonies, including the popular puffin cam, a puffin burrow cam, and a tern nest cam. On Hog Island, there is a camera streaming a nest of ospreys.
Volunteers must have flexible schedules, and be willing to commit 10-15 hours per week from mid April thru September. PC users and high speed Internet are a must. Most importantly, they must be passionate about watching these incredible birds!
