audubon cormorant cam

This is the first Cormorant Cam in the world! The cam provides unique, up-close views of cormorant family life, and gives wildlife managers and viewers an opportunity to learn about interactions between cormorants and bald eagles, a principal threat to the colony.

The Cormorant Cam sits on a granite ledge on the south end of Seal Island National Wildlife Refuge in the Gulf of Maine, home to the Audubon Puffin Burrow and Loafing Ledge Cams. Here we’ll see Great Cormorants and Double-crested Cormorants. The Great Cormorant Colony has only about 25 pairs, but is the largest colony of this state-threatened species in Maine.

The Cormorant Cam is part of a partnership between explore.org and Audubon’s Project Puffin and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
