Atlantic puffin

Puffin mania will reach a climax in Guernsey in August when the puffin parade comes to an end.

Since 3 April 2023, 60 handcrafted puffins have been displayed at various locations around the island. 

The four inch tall Atlantic Puffins were placed on plinths at local businesses, schools, attractions, churches, restaurants, landmarks, and other places of interest.

At the end of this month, the puffins will be auctioned off to raise funds for Autism Guernsey and the GSPCA. 

The birds were handcrafted in the Philippines and decorated by local Guernsey artists, clubs and community groups, schools, charities, and day centres. They are made of high quality, durable, cold cast poly-resin, and fibreglass.

digital locator map ‘roughly’ shows where the puffins can be found. Members of the public are invited to track them all down, take photos with the puffins, and share their images online and on social media.

If you haven’t found all the puffins yet, you have just a few weeks to get going!
