At a Glance

Aid in the hands-on restoration of Maine seabird populations with pioneering researcher Dr. Stephen Kress and the National Audubon Society's internationally renowned Seabird Restoration Program. You'll live on an island sanctuary during this week-long adventure and participate in a side of bird science and conservation that most can only view on television.

Best of all, you'll ...

  • Immerse yourself in knowledge about bird identification, banding, adaptations, migration, ecology and conservation led by distinguished ornithologists.
  • Journey by boat to Wreck Island and put your seabird ID skills to use with the heron and seabird colonies. On the return, watch for seals, porpoise and small whales.
  • Feel the history at Audubon’s Hog Island Camp, the longest running environmental camp in the United States.
