  • Drought conditions have spread over 70% of the US West.

  • That makes the vegetation on the ground right for spreading potential fires.

  • This year, the nation has seen more than 44,000 fires so far each year.

  • An average of six million acres have burned in wildfires across the country this year.

  • Thes small birds can be found throughout the North Atlantic Ocean from the U.

  • S and Europe to Greenland and northern Russia.

  • Most of them live in Iceland.

  • The National Audubon Society says that 60% of Atlantic puffins breed there, but there's an effort to bring them back to northern Maine.

  • And what started with one man's puffin passion project has turned into a successful effort to re populate puffins off the coast of Maine.

  • For 47 years, Stephen Crest has had a central passion.

  • My mission for life has been to learn more about the ocean birds at the heart of the mission.

  • A very special species puff it because they look and act kind of like people.

  • People can relate to them the way they walk, pair rubs bills together the way they raise their family.

  • Puffins had all but disappeared from the Maine coast after being hunted for food and feathers back in the 18 hundreds, 1973 Crest began an effort to bring them back to Eastern Egg Rock, this tiny speck of an island just 30 minutes off the mainland.

  • It wasn't an easy task.

  • They had to transplant young sea birds from Canada.

  • Puffin chicks from Newfoundland were put in each of these boroughs hand fed, and then they would come out when they were six weeks old and they would work their way to the edge of the island and swim off for four straight years.

  • None of the puffins came back, so I began trying to think like a puffin, and I realized that if young puffins did remember this island, maybe they wouldn't come ashore because they were too timid.

  • Puffins are social birds, and they like being with others of their kind.

  • Crest tried placing fake puffin decoys around the island within days, the first puffin returned.

  • That decoy experience was the first beginning of what we now call social attraction.

  • Social attraction simply means you're attracting birds using artifacts like decoys, audio recordings, mirrors sent, artificial burrows.

  • Those techniques sort of give birds a little encouragement.

  • Thio start to start the nucleus of a new colony.

  • Project Puffin has come a long way.

  • Chris says.

  • There are now at least 1300 pairs of puffins across five main islands.

  • Oh, what a cutie look at that.

  • That's a puffin teenager.

  • Humans no longer need toe, hand rear The chicks.

  • Puffins are doing a great job of that all by themselves.

  • In Holliston, Massachusetts, the balancing rock has lost its balance.

  • This is what it used to look like.

  • Geologists say it balanced like this for thousands of years.

  • The rock has a village and a street named after it, but this is what it looks like now.

  • More of a fallen rock.

  • Residents just found it like this last Tuesday.

  • Legend has it that President George Washington once tried to push it over.

  • Maybe that started the process.

  • So would it be possible to bring in some heavy machinery and just move it back?

  • One expert says no.

  • So something that was once really nice to marvel at has lost some of its coldness.

  • And the anthrocytes will never be the same.

  • Of course, nothing lasts forever.

  • Guess they'll just have to wipe the slate clean, chalk it up to nature and try not to take anything else for granted.
